Emirates is the upstart from the Arab world, which has established itself with both quantity and quality. Today Emirates flies to more than 150 destinations across six continents.
The history of Emirates begins in 1985 with only two aircraft! Today Emirates flies with the world's largest fleet of Airbus A380s and Boeing 777s, offering their customers the comfort of the latest and most efficient long-range wide-body aircraft. Emirates inspires travellers around the globe with their growing network of destinations, industry-leading in-flight entertainment, regionally influenced onboard menus and world-class service.
Daily flights connect Mauritius to the Emirates hub in Dubai from where one can reach all available destinations and vice versa. Especially for flights from Europe and Asia, Emirates is a very convenient and fast alternative to direct flights (if available). The short stopover in Dubai is for many of these passengers most welcome, because it allows to interrupt an otherwise very long flight and to relax. Often Emirates is also a very good choice to fly to destinations in Africa. They fly to more than 20 African destinations and are the only 5-star airline which connects Mauritius with Africa. You may take a little longer, but you certainly will enjoy your travel.
The quality of the airline is reflected in various awards from renowned trade magazines, public awards and passenger evaluations. These include prizes for the best long-haul airline, best frequent flyer program, best in-flight entertainment, best catering or best airline in the Middle East / Indian Ocean region. In "The World's Top 100 Airlines - 2017" by the most popular airline rating organisation Skytrax, Emirates has been awarded as No 4 by customers. As such it is the No 1 airline flying with own air planes to Mauritius.
