Air Mauritius A330-900 arrives

The Indian Ocean’s first Airbus A330-900neo took a bow at Heathrow last week as Air Mauritius hosted an unveiling event the day before the aircraft entered service on the airline’s London – Mauritius route.

The airline has now become the first to operate both the A350 XWB and A330-900neo aircraft and the first to operate the A330-900neo in the Indian Ocean.

The aircraft seats 288 passengers, 28 in Business Class with state-of-the-art entertainment system, individual 15.4in HD LED screen and aisle access. Economy Class features 18in wide seats and individual 11.1in HD LED screens.

Air Mauritius CEO Somas Appavou said: “The addition of two new A330neos to our fleet will bring more flexibility and efficiency to our operations, while supporting our network strategy.

“The aircraft offers similar levels of comfort as the A350 XWB, which has received favourable feedback from passengers and allows us to reinforce our focus and emphasis on the customer, who is at the very core of our business model.”

Regional manager UK and Ireland Ian Nash added: “We are confident this new cutting-edge aircraft will provide the perfect start for our passengers to begin their trips to Mauritius.”
