Starting on 1st February 2012, Air France will be commercializing daily flights operated by Air Mauritius under an Air France flight number between the two airports in Reunion Island (Saint-Denis and Saint-Pierre) and Mauritius.
This commercial partnership comes within the framework of the agreements signed between the two airlines in 2008, which already enables Air Mauritius to use its code on Air France flights from the hub at Paris-Charles de Gaulle in Metropolitan France and to several destinations in Europe.
This code-share agreement increases capacity to Reunion Island and Mauritius by creating new travel opportunities via Mauritius and via Reunion Island. Moreover, Air France enables its customers to earn miles between Reunion Island and Mauritius.
Air Mauritius operates up to 7 daily frequencies on departure from Mauritius to Reunion Island, Roland Garros and Pierrefonds airports.
Air Mauritius and Air France together operate up to 18 weekly flights to Mauritius at peak periods on departure from Paris-CDG airport. Air Mauritius operates up to 9 weekly flights by Airbus A340-300 and Air France operates up to 9 weekly flights by Boeing 747-400.
Air France operates up to 12 weekly flights to Reunion Island by Boeing 777-300ER at peak periods on departure from Paris-Orly airport.
