Air Mauritius announces that it will operate one direct weekly flight to Geneva during part of the Northern Winter period which corresponds to the peak season.

The flights will be operated by the airbus A340-300.

“The start of operations to Geneva will stimulate traffic from the Swiss market. The decision is in line with our strategy to reinforce operations to Europe following the announcement earlier this year regarding the introduction of Amsterdam.” stated Raja (Indradev) Buton - Air Mauritius Officer-in-Charge. He added that the flight will also cater for the higher demand during the peak tourist season. In 2016, the number of tourist arrivals from Switzerland grew by 18% to reach 36,272.
 
During off-peak, Air Mauritius will continue to serve the Swiss market through the Paris Charles de Gaulle hub, which it serves in collaboration with airline partner, Air France. From Charles de Gaulle, Air Mauritius offers codeshare flights on Air France to more than 35 destinations in Europe including Geneva and Zurich.
