British Airways changes Mauritius timetable

18th February 2011 Print

From November 1, British Airways is changing its Mauritius timetable to give customers an overnight flight from Mauritius to London.

The better timing coincides with the route being switched from Heathrow to Gatwick, further strengthening the airline’s premium leisure programme at the airport.

Currently flights from Mauritius to London depart at 8.55am and arrive at 5.15pm. The changes will create evening departures for both the outbound and inbound flights to allow customers to maximise their time on the island.

Suneel Tyagi, commercial manager said: “We’ve listened to feedback from our customers about the timings on the Mauritius flight so it’s great we’ve been able to design the new schedule around their needs. This new timing has an evening departure from Mauritius and an early morning arrival into Gatwick, giving back customers a full day on the island and chance to rest overnight on the northbound flight.”

Arriving ready-for-business Gatwick gives customers a wide-range of transfer options throughout the UK and Europe and the rest of the world. The airport is south of London with excellent transport links, including the Gatwick Express train link.

Mr Arekion said: “Gatwick’s owners, GIP, are ploughing significant investment into the airport so customers can expect a new level of service there soon. The future for British Airways customers using Gatwick is very bright.”

The route will be served by a Boeing 777 aircraft with 275 seats on board.
