Air Mauritius has added a fourth destination in China, after already operating twice a week services to Beijing, thrice a week services to Shanghai, and a thrice a week service to Hong Kong.

The added flight to Chengdu, China, raises the annual seat capacity to over 130,000 combined on the 4 routes, underscoring the importance of this market not only for Mauritius itself but also for transit traffic to other neighboring islands like Reunion Island, as well as into Africa.

Air Mauritius has over the past years successfully implemented a cost and route-cutting program and shifted focus from some of its past source markets in Europe increasingly to China, and load factors appear to confirm that decision as the right way to go.

After the recent change at the helm of the Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority (MTPA), the MTPA will no doubt join hands with Air Mauritius and equally focus on such emerging markets to tap into the travel potential the Chinese market offers at present.
