Air France, Air Mauritius Sign Codeshare Agreement

Air Mauritius and Air France have signed a new codeshare agreement for an initial five-year period aimed at strengthening the partnership between the two airlines.

This new agreement replaces the one signed on October 21, 1998, which focused specifically on the ParisMauritius route, as the two airlines operate up to 17 weekly non-stop flights between Mauritius and Paris.

Air Mauritius will be able to add its code to Air France flights connecting at the Paris Charles de Gaulle International Airport (Paris-CDG) to Europe, Israel and North Africa and reciprocally, Air France will be able to add its code to Air Mauritius flights connecting in Mauritius.

In addition to the 24 destinations it already serves, Air Mauritius can now offer its customers daily code-shared flights via the Paris-CDG hub between Mauritius and over 35 new destinations in France, the UK, Spain, Germany, Russia, Austria and Italy.
