Air Mauritius is pleased to announce it will resume its flights to Sydney from July 2010.
Manoj R K Ujoodha, G.O.S.K., CEO of Air Mauritius says “We are delighted to be
flying again to Sydney from July 2010. Our pattern of operations from that date will
include a direct flight to Perth and a direct flight to Melbourne/Sydney. This
represents a 100% increase in capacity on our Australian operations in response to
forecasted increase in demand. We would like to thank our customers and the
travel trade for their support during these two difficult years for the airline industry
worldwide. We are particularly thankful to the Mauritian community in Australia,
and in New South Wales in particular, for their loyalty to the national airline. We are
now back on the path of growth and will continue to play our role in promoting
tourism between Mauritius and Australia, developing Mauritius as a hub and acting
as a bridge between our region and Australia.”
Steven Palombo, Manager Australia says “As the new Manager here, I am pleased
to see so many developments in the past months. We now have a new GSA –
Airline Marketing Australia, a new team and have a great product to sell moving
forward. I am particularly pleased with the resumption of the Sydney operations as
we will have more opportunities to offer to our customers travelling to Mauritius
and beyond to Reunion, Rodrigues, Madagascar, Kenya, South Africa and Europe.
Our collaboration with Virgin Blue will provide our customers with even more
opportunities to connect from most cities in Australia to our three destinations.
