Students and accompanying family members

Travelling overseas for tertiary education? We offer concessional fares and deals on specific flights to students and their accompanying family members.

At Air Mauritius, we are pleased to offer special one-way or return fares to students travelling overseas for higher education to universities, schools or colleges offering full-time educational, vocational or technical courses for a school year.

In addition, discounts are available for any two family members – father or mother or brothers or sisters or spouse or children – accompanying the student to enrol them in the educational institution or attend a graduation ceremony. Terms and conditions apply. Please contact us for more details.
