Air Mauritius is the flagship airline of Mauritius and flies from its hub - Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport (code MRU) situated about 48km from the capital city of Port Louis. Air Mauritius operates regional and international services to over 30 destinations with 80 flights per week including weekly flights from Mauritius to South Africa (Johannesburg, Durban & Cape Town).

Did you know? You can fly direct to Mauritius (on Air Mauritius) from 25 different airports on 4 continents around the world.

The Mauritian airline currently runs one of the youngest commercial fleets – 12 planes with an average aircraft age of 8 years. In 40 years of operating they’ve never had a single incident, and they’re one of the few airlines in the world that have combined commercial flights with helicopter flights, using 3 Bell Jet Ranger helicopters.

The logo that adorns Air Mauritius’ fleet is the Phaeton Rubicola or ‘Paille-en-Queue’ - a fish-eating tropical bird. While the Dodo bird is iconic to Mauritius, it was probably a no brainer that it would never become the logo for the Air Mauritius fleet – the Dodo is firstly extinct, and secondly unable to fly!   


Air Mauritius check-in counters open three hours before flights depart. It’s always suggested to arrive at the airport early in order to avoid congestion and security delays.

For Air Mauritius flights from Cape Town to Mauritius, check in is located on the Upper Level at Cape Town International Airport. At Johannesburg’s OR Tambo Airport, Air Mauritius check in counters are located in the International Departures Terminal A.
