Air Mauritius has launched two new destinations to its African network.

On May 4, the carrier began weekly flights to Maputo, Mozambique operating on Wednesdays, with the return flight operating via Durban.

Two days later on May 6, the airline introduced a weekly service to Dar es Salaam in Tanzania, operating on Fridays. Return flights on this route operate via Nairobi.

Both routes will be serviced by one of the airline’s two A319s and neither faces direct competition.

Megh Pillay, CEO of Air Mauritius, said: “African economies have shown remarkable resilience to the global crisis. Their growth rates have been consistently higher than the global average. The expansion of our network on the African continent is a step to address the need for more air connectivity. These new flights will contribute in feeding the Air Corridor that links Africa and Asia via the hubs of Mauritius and Singapore.”
