Air Mauritius has launched the Mauritius Stopover Plus Travel Package, which offers passengers up to two complimentary nights in Mauritius as part of their journey.

Air Mauritius regional manager, Southern Africa and Latin America, Carla da Silva, said: “Being a global carrier with an effective footprint in Australia, India, China, Malaysia, Europe, Africa and the Indian Ocean Islands, it is key for Air Mauritius to promote its beyond Mauritius destination strategy.”

Depending on the connectivity, Air Mauritius will pay for passengers to spend a night on the island on either a bed-and-breakfast or half-board basis. Passengers can choose to extend their stopover by adding an extra night or two.

The Mauritius Stopover Plus Package lets passengers choose from approximately 16 hotels, ranging between three and five stars, and located on the west, east, north and south coasts. Urban hotels in Port Louis have also been included to meet the needs of corporate travellers wishing conduct business meetings, en route to London, Paris, Australia, Malaysia, etc.

“While the new stopover package is a tremendous value-add to all our passengers, as well as a unique selling point for the airline, seamless connectivity is still available on certain routes. Consumers can thus choose not to make use of the offering, or enjoy it on one leg of their journey only.

“A family of four, can expect to save as much as R5 500, at the current rate of exchange. So why not book now and expand your holiday horizons to include quad biking, cycling, abseiling, snorkelling, scuba diving, archery and mountain climbing, to name but a few,” said Carla.
