Air Mauritius once again spreads its wings to Johannesburg

Air Mauritius has been operating again on routes to South Africa and Rodrigues Island since January 9, 2022. A return to activity which could be disrupted in March with the arrival of a competing firm on its line to Johannesburg, the low-cost airline FlySafair.

With 5 flights per week between Mauritius and South Africa, Air Mauritius has been back in business since the beginning of 2022. Flights, operated all week, excluding Tuesdays and Saturdays, at 9:15 a.m. from Port-Louis, and at 1:35 p.m. from Johannesburg, should take place daily from February.

However, this resumption of activity by the Mauritian company could be disrupted by the return of the low-cost company of South African Airways, FlySafair, on the airline between the two territories, scheduled for March 8. If the South African carrier had resumed operations on this line at the end of November 2021, the arrival of the Omicron variant put a stop to the relaunch of its flights.

From March, Fly Safair will therefore operate two weekly flights, on Tuesdays and Saturdays at 9:00 a.m. to Mauritius, and at 4:15 p.m. for return flights to Johannesburg. In comments reported by our colleagues from Travel News, Kirby Gordon, marketing director of FlySafair, declared: “We are super-delighted with this first route beyond the borders of South Africa. This is an important step for the airline.”
