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.
