GIS - 08 September, 2016: The launching in March 2016 of the Air Corridor between Africa and Asia/South East Asia using Mauritius and Changi Airport as hubs has led to an increase in total traffic during the period April to July 2016, as compared to the same period in 2015, with three direct flights to Singapore.
The performance of Air Mauritius Ltd on the Singapore-Kuala Lumpur route has also shown a marked improvement with a rise in the load factor from 64.35% to 74.95%, representing an increase of 3,430 passengers.
The Mauritius-Singapore Air Corridor concept is based on the use of Mauritius and Singapore as hubs with a view to promoting origin and destination traffic flows between Africa and Asia/South East Asia.
In order to further develop the Air Corridor, a delegation comprising senior officials and representatives of Air Mauritius will participate in a Strategic Workshop on the Air Corridor that would be organised by the Changi Airport Group Promotion in September 2016 to explore and agree on ways and means to do so.
