Update: Double Daily A380 Flights to Mauritius
Services between Dubai and Mauritius is operated in code-share with Emirates’ long-time partner Air Mauritius.
Mauritius will from 26 October 2014 be served with a double daily A380 service from Dubai.
The second A380, which will operate as flight EK703/704, replaces the existing Boeing 777 operation and increases capacity on the route by 19 percent.
The launch of a double daily A380 service to Mauritius will further strengthen Dubai’s support for the Mauritius’ tourism industry and hoteliers and operators have welcomed this initiative.
Commenting on the second A380 service, Michael Yeung Sik Yuen, Minister of Tourism and Leisure for Mauritius, said: “Since the launch of the first A380 to Mauritius last year, we’ve received a very good response from travelers, especially with our new and modern airport that can accommodate large aircraft. “This new milestone will promote Mauritius and the airport as a ‘premier league’ destination in the Indian Ocean, being the only airport that will offer Emirates’ services using entirely A380 aircraft.”
