Flying to Mauritius

The national carrier is Air Mauritius (www.airmauritius.com), which has daily flights from London Heathrow. British Airways (www.ba.com) also flies directly from London Heathrow. There is no cheap time to fly to Mauritius, so in general terms book early to get the best fares and avoid Christmas.

Major airport is: Mauritius Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport.
