Air Mauritius to introduce two aircrafts

Mauritian flag carrier Air Mauritius will introduce two Airbus A330-900 New Engine Option (neo) aircrafts, the Aapravasi Ghat and the Chagos Archipelago, to its fleet by the end of this year.  As part of the final phase of test flights leading to the Type Certification of its latest mid-size wide body airliner, Airbus flew its brand new A330neo to Mauritius for the first time.

The aircraft, an A330-900, painted in the livery of launch operator TAP Air Portugal, landed at the Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport on 30 June 2018. This stopover is part of the route proving campaign taking place around the world designed to demonstrate to aviation authorities its compatibility with airports and readiness for airline operations. This trip marks the A330neo’s first time in Africa.
