Perth Airport has welcomed the news that Air
Mauritius will offer a third weekly departing flight from Perth to
Mauritius starting from 1 April 2013.
Air Mauritius, which has
served Perth non-stop for more than 20 years, will offer the new
flight every Friday afternoon departing at 13:05, in addition to
the existing Sunday and Wednesday departures at Perth Airport.
Perth Airport Chief Executive Officer, Brad Geatches said Air Mauritius’s decision to introduce a new weekly
flight was good news for travellers.
“Mauritius is a popular travel destination in
the leisure market, important for the resource sector’s business
links with Africa, and connects travellers to a number of exciting
travel destinations across the world including Africa, the United
Kingdom and Europe,” Mr Geatches said. “With Perth Airport being
the gateway for Air Mauritius to the rest of Australia, this
additional flight will not only provide passengers with further
choice, but offer significant benefits to the Western Australian
economy and tourism ... Perth Airport is currently the fastest growing
capital city airport in Australia and these new flights will
fulfill the demand currently shown for high quality services.”
The new Air Mauritius flights will operate using
an Airbus A330 aircraft in a two-class configuration, with 24
seats in business class and 251 seats in economy class.
