Air Mauritius Finalizes Order for Three A350s, Eyes European and South Asian Expansion

PARIS, FRANCE — Fleet expansion: Air Mauritius invests in three more A350s to fortify global presence.


Air Mauritius is set to bolster its operations in Europe and South Asia, having firmed an order for three A350 aircraft.

This addition of the latest generation aircraft will enhance Air Mauritius’ A350 fleet to seven units. Presently, the airline employs four A350 and four A330 Airbus aircraft.

Proudly reaffirming their commitment to Airbus and its product range, Kresimir Kucko, CEO of Air Mauritius, expressed enthusiasm about the extended three-decade-long partnership. "The additional A350-900 aircraft will fortify our European presence and pave the way for further growth in other markets. Our ambitious goals can be achieved in unison with Airbus," he asserted.

Christian Scherer, Airbus' Chief Commercial Officer and Head of International, lauded Air Mauritius for centralizing the A350 in its long-haul fleet modernization program. "With superior range capability, efficiency, passenger capacity, and comfort, the A350 is the quintessential platform for linking the picturesque island of Mauritius with the rest of the globe," Scherer remarked.
