Air Mauritius has signed a memorandum of understanding that covers four A350-900s and is to lease an additional two aircraft of the variant, says Airbus.
The carrier already operates 10 Airbus aircraft, including A330s. It is to operate the six A350s on European, Asian and Australian routes.
“The A350 XWB combined with the A330 suits Air Mauritius’s entire long-range network and will be key to modernising our fleet while significantly reducing our operational costs and environmental footprint,” says Air Mauritius chief executive Andries Viljoen. “It is the game-changer we were looking for.”
