Air Mauritius CEO, Somas Appavou, said, “I am
delighted to welcome our first Airbus A330neo, another milestone
in our fleet modernisation programme. The addition of two A330neos
to our fleet will bring more flexibility and efficiency to our
operations while supporting our network strategy. The A330neo
offers similar levels of comfort as the A350 XWB, which has
received very favourable feedback from our customers. I strongly
believe that with the addition of the A330neo to our fleet, Air
Mauritius will further reinforce its focus and emphasis on the
customer who are at the very core of our business model.”

aircraft, including two A350-900s, three A340-300s, two A330-200s
