Air Mauritius, the national airline of the Republic of Mauritius has confirmed today 19 June 2023, an order for three Airbus A350-900 aircraft at the 54th edition of Paris Air Show which is being held at Le Bourget.

The three latest generation aircraft will bring Air Mauritius’ Airbus A350 fleet to a total of seven.

The national carrier’s widebody fleet currently consists of four Airbus A350-900, two Airbus A330-900neo and one Airbus A330-200 aircraft. A second Airbus A330-200 aircraft is expected to join the fleet in August this year.

Air Mauritius started the introduction of the Airbus A350-900 aircraft in October 2017. 

“Air Mauritius is proud to renew its confidence in Airbus and its products, continuing a three-decade long partnership. The additional Airbus A350-900 aircraft will help us strengthen our European network and secure further growth in other markets. We are looking forward to achieving our ambitious objectives together with Airbus,” said Mr Krešimir Kučko, CEO of Air Mauritius. 

The Airbus A350 is the world’s most modern and efficient widebody aircraft and the long-range leader in the 300-410 seater category. The Airbus A350 offers the longest-range capability of any commercial airliner family in production today with a range of up to 9,700 nautical miles non-stop.

The Airbus A350’s clean sheet design includes state-of-the-art technologies and aerodynamics, delivering unmatched standards of efficiency and comfort. Its new generation engines and use of lightweight materials make it the most fuel-efficient large widebody aircraft. The Airbus A350 is the quietest aircraft in its class with 50 percent noise footprint reduction compared to previous generation aircraft.

The delivery of these three additional widebody aircraft is expected between Quarter 4 of year 2025 and Quarter 3 of year 2026.
