Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Thursday, 18 June 2009

Emirates Airline is to increase its number of flights between Dubai and the island paradise of Mauritius with two additional flights per week starting 27th June 2009.

Emirates current daily service will escalate to nine flights per week, with the additional flights operating on Thursdays and Saturdays. The extra flights will increase existing capacity by almost 20% per week per direction.

Majid Al Mualla, Emirates Vice President Commercial Operations, West Asia & Indian Ocean said, The increased frequency is representative of Emirates enhanced commitment to Mauritius. Our recent campaigns have stepped up demand for the route as well as opened up new feeder markets such as Russia and East Europe. The increasing number of tourists will welcome these additional flights as they will have more travel options and better connectivity. Flights from Emirates Middle East network and Russia connect within four hours to the Mauritius service.

930,456 tourists visited Mauritius in 2008, representing a 2.6% increase in arrivals over the previous year.

EK 3705 will take off from Terminal 3, Dubai International Airport at 10:20 and touch down at SSR International Airport in Mauritius at 16:45. It will turn around as EK 3706, departing Mauritius at 18:30 and arriving in Dubai at 01:00 the following day.
