Air Mauritius assure de nouveau la liaison avec Genève  



Afin de répondre à la demande élevée pendant la haute saison, Air Mauritius annonce un vol hebdomadaire direct vers Genève à partir du 18 novembre. Cette liaison directe sera assurée par un Airbus A340-300 les samedis, du 18 novembre au 16 décembre 2017, et les vendredis du 22 décembre 2017 au 23 février 2018. L’avion décollera à 9 h 15 et l’atterrissage est prévu à 17 h 50, heure locale.

Pour le retour, l’avion quittera Genève à 21 h 05 et arrivera à Maurice à 11 h 05, heure locale.

C’est l’Airbus A340-300 qui effectuera les opérations vers la destination Suisse. L’horaire de départ sera à 9 h 15. La période choisie représente la saison de pointe pour les Suisses.

Cette reprise des opérations s’insère dans le cadre de la stratégie mise en place par Air Mauritius pour cibler davantage l’Europe. Par contre, pendant la saison basse Air Mauritius desservira la destination suisse à travers le Paris Charles de Gaulle hub comme c’est le cas actuellement.

Voici le communiqué émis à ce sujet :

Air Mauritius to start seasonal operations to Geneva 

Air Mauritius announces that it will operate one direct weekly flight to Geneva during part of the Northern Winter period which corresponds to the peak season.

The flight will be operated on Saturdays between 18 November to 16 December 2017 and on Fridays between 22 December 2017 and 23 February 2018. It will depart from Mauritius at 09h15 and arrive in Geneva at 17h50 local time. The return flight is scheduled to depart from Geneva at 21h05 and expected to land in Mauritius at 11h05, local time the following morning.

The flights will be operated by the airbus A340-300.  “The start of operations to Geneva will stimulate traffic from the Swiss market. The decision is in line with our strategy to reinforce operations to Europe following the announcement earlier this year regarding the introduction of Amsterdam.” stated Raja (Indradev) Buton – Air Mauritius Officer-in-Charge. He added that the flight will also cater for the higher demand during the peak tourist season. In 2016, the number of tourist arrivals from Switzerland grew by 18% to reach 36,272.

During off-peak, Air Mauritius will continue to serve the Swiss market through the Paris Charles de Gaulle hub, which it serves in collaboration with airline partner, Air France. From Charles de Gaulle, Air Mauritius offers codeshare flights on Air France to more than 35 destinations in Europe including Geneva and Zurich.
