Do you prefer an aisle seat so you can access in-flight amenities without disturbing your fellow passengers? Or, do you wish to see your flight take off from the breath-taking vantage point at your window seat? With an online check-in you are free to choose your seat.
Note that seat reservation is not guaranteed, even if confirmed, and Air Mauritius reserves the right to change the seating for operational, safety or security reasons, even after boarding the aircraft. Read our Conditions of Carriage for more details.

What to do if you have hand baggage only:

- All flights operated by Air Mauritius.
- All flights operated by Air France departing from Mauritius and Paris only.
Who needs to check in at the airport on the day of departure:
- If you are travelling in a group (defined as more than nine people travelling together to the same destination, not including infants), please present yourselves together at the check-in counter. We shall check-in and accept all passengers individually and assign seats together, as far as possible, taking into account any special seating arrangements requested by group members. On your part as a group traveler, please ensure that baggage tags reflect the respective passenger’s details.
- Passengers who require special assistance
- Infants (passengers below 2 years of age) cannot be checked in online. Adults travelling with infants are kindly requested to check in directly at the check in counters located at the airport.
When to arrive at the airport:
Note that at an international airport, security procedures may sometimes slow down due to high numbers of people travelling. Please allow sufficient time to clear all procedures, such as check in at the counter, baggage drop and immigration. Check the Flight Information screens to find out which check-in zone to use for your flight.
In all cases, please ensure that you don't need to make a last-minute dash for your flight. We recommend that you check in at the Air Mauritius counter at least 3 hours before your departure time.

Special considerations to bear in mind for an online check-in:
- In certain cases, operational necessities may temporarily prevent us from opening the flight for an online check-in. We kindly request you to try again later or to check in at the airport.
- Air Mauritius cannot accept any liability for any connectivity or technical errors that may occur during the online check-in process, or for the downtime of the website.
- The accuracy of information provided by the passenger when using the online tool is the full responsibility of the passenger. Air Mauritius cannot accept any liability for inaccurate or incorrect information provided by the passenger.
- Similarly, Air Mauritius is not responsible for any errors that may occur during the registration of frequent flyer number details. Registration of miles is subject to the relevant frequent flyer conditions and rules. We advise that passengers retain the original boarding pass and the original ticket in the event that passenger makes a claim for missing miles.
- Passengers are requested to retain their printed itinerary receipt for presentation at the airport(s).
- Passengers who have checked in online are still subject to all required airport security checks.
- In the case where a passenger changes his/her flight plans after performing an online check-in, the passenger is responsible for cancelling his/her flight prior to departure. Please contact us on +230 6033030 or the local Air Mauritius airport contacts listed here.
- If a passenger who has checked in online does not present himself or herself at the check-in counter at least an hour before the flight departs, it would be deemed that the passenger does not intend to travel and Air Mauritius would unfortunately have to render such a check-in liable for an automatic cancellation.
- Not all airports allow for a process of online check-in and some airports have limited facilities that do not allow for an end-to-end online check-in – for instance, due to immigration, safety and airport limitations, certain airports do not allow or recognise boarding passes that are not printed at the airport check-in counter. In these cases, passengers are advised to visit the check-in counter at the airport for a printed boarding pass to be issued.
- Whilst all efforts will be made to retain specific seat selections made by passengers in a booking reservation, Air Mauritius cannot guarantee the seat allocation when there is a change of aircraft. We apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused due to such a contingency. Please check our conditions of carriage.
