Cargo service is as much an area of Air Mauritius' expertise as is passenger transportation. Our excellence in this service is supported by our high cargo hold capacity on A340 and A330 long-haul aircraft and our stringent quality policy.

Air Mauritius' strengths in the cargo business

Our network connectivity

Cargo revenue represents about 15% of the turnover of Air Mauritius, which serves 26 destinations across 4 continents. We operate more than 80 weekly flights on wide-body aircraft.

The strategic position of Mauritius

At the crossroads between Africa, the Indian Ocean, and Europe, Mauritius is a natural strategic transit hub for the operation of our cargo service. Another advantage is SSR International Airport's outstanding handling facilities.

State-of-the-art equipment

SSR International Airport's fully automated cargo terminal has the necessary capacity to handle the existing export and transit traffic and can accommodate further growth of up to 25%.

Separate warehouses are available for perishable, dangerous, fragile, and valuable goods.

In addition, Air Mauritius recently invested in modern infrastructure and state-of-the-art equipment to facilitate transshipment of cargo. Air Mauritius can now execute ramp-to-ramp transfer to international standards within 90 minutes.

Our specialized staff

The trained and professional staff in charge of our cargo service provides added value in the handling and transshipment of goods. Our friendly and committed team is available round the clock to ensure a fast and efficient service.
