Emirates will soon add an A380 on the Dubai-Mauritius route effective 16 December 2013.
The aircraft will operate as flight EK 701 on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays and EK 3701 on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays, departing from Dubai at 03.10 hours and arriving in Mauritius at 09.40. The return flight EK 702 and EK 3702 will depart Mauritius’ Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport at 18.20 hours and arrives in Dubai at 01.10 the next day.
Thierry Antinori – Emirates’ executive vice president and chief commercial officer said: “The decision to add extra capacity supports the tourism sector of Mauritius. There has been growing demand to support leisure traffic to the region, and the extra capacity will serve multiple destinations across our network.”
The new flight will replace one of the existing three class Boeing 777-300 services the airline currently operates to Mauritius.
