No discussions ongoing regarding a partnership with another airline

Following the publication of recent press articles regarding a partnership between a major African airline and Air Mauritius, the joint administrators of Air Mauritius would like to inform all stakeholders and the public in general that no such discussions are ongoing presently.
The administration process is progressing following the positive creditors meeting which was held on Monday, 4th May 2020. In line with their mandate, the administrators are working with the stakeholders to explore all the possible avenues to keep the national airline afloat and enable it to take off once this sanitary crisis is over.
“Since our appointment as administrators, our mission has remained the same. We are fully committed to safeguarding the interests of Air Mauritius, of its employees, shareholders and trade partners. The stakeholders should rest assured  that we will keep them  updated as  we progress in the administration process given the strategic importance of our national carrier for our economy, especially for the travel and tourism industry,” says Sattar Hajee Abdoula, one of the administrators and Chief Executive Officer of Grant Thornton.
