Turkish granted 5 weekly flights to Mauritius

The Mauritius Government has signed a new bilateral accord with Turkey paving the way for Turkish Airlines to launch its much anticipated nonstop services into MRU airport from IATA S16 season onwards.

TK has been granted 5 weekly flights with fifth freedom rights beyond to Madagascar. It is expected that this new route will be launched using an A333 considering the flying time between IST and MRU is only 10 hours.



TK will be obviously targeting the volumetric EU traffic bound to MRU which is a high yielding leisure destination versus BKK/DPS/MLE. In 2014, the demand between the top EU markets and MRU round trip were as follows:

CDG - 270,000
LHR - 179,000
FRA - 55,000
ZRH - 33,000
GVA - 29,000
MXP - 22,000
MUC - 20,000
MAN - 20,000
NCE - 14,000
FCO - 14,000
DUS - 12,000
MRS - 12,000
