Serving passengers for over half a century

Air Mauritius was incorporated on 14 June 1967, a few months before the country became independent. Over more than 50 years, Air Mauritius has carved out a key role as the national airline of Mauritius, providing air connectivity that has been crucial for the development of the island.


Air Mauritius has also provided an important channel over the years for travellers looking to visit Mauritius with direct connections from multiple destinations in Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, and Indian Ocean, boosting the Mauritian economy.
