Air Mauritius developed a hugely extended network spanning the Indian Ocean, Africa, Europe, Asia and Australia, serving non-stop destinations as far as Hong Kong and Shanghai. It has a very modern long-haul fleet, where the older Airbus A340-300 are due to be substituted with Airbus A350-900. As a consequence of the Covid pandemic which practically stopped the flux of tourists from all over the world to Mauritius, on April 20, 2020 the carrier was placed in voluntary administration, but continued to be operative in the interests of the island-nation (Photo Wikimedia Commons / Sergei Kustov)
