AIR MAURITIUS plans to use Malaysia as its hub of operations for future expansion plans in North Asia and South-east Asia, with its newest service being a Mauritius-Kuala Lumpur-Shanghai route that will commence on July 1.
The once-weekly flight uses the Airbus A330-200, which has 24 business-class seats and 251 economy-class seats.
Air Mauritius currently operates twice-weekly services to Kuala Lumpur and Singapore, and thrice-weekly services to Hong Kong. Shanghai will be Air Mauritius’ fourth destination in Asia.
Air Mauritius regional manager, North-east & South-east Asia, Shiri Prakash Rai, said: “The third frequency to Kuala Lumpur and onward to Shanghai will provide more flexibility to the Malaysian market and is in line with our strategy of growing our frequencies to a daily for Asia.”
Singapore will remain as the airline’s regional office for North Asia and South-east Asia.
