Mauritius Business Travel Guide - - MAURITIUS -

AS AN IS­LAND, Mau­ri­tius is par­tic­u­larly de­pen­dent on its airlift and seat ca­pac­ity and as such, it will bring about the open­ing of the Asi­aAfrica Air Cor­ri­dor, link­ing the two con­ti­nents via Mau­ri­tius, a fact that will aid the is­land’s busi­ness tourism with easy con­nec­tions to Sin­ga­pore and of­fer­ing high prospects for the lo­cal econ­omy.

This will pro­vide trav­ellers with a con­ve­nient stop-over in Mau­ri­tius that looks set to trans­form the is­land over the com­ing years to be­come a strate­gic air­line hub for flights be­tween Africa and Asia. With the ever-present fo­cus on corporate events and busi­ness travel as a whole, ad­di­tional flights from South In­dia to Mau­ri­tius have been in­tro­duced in or­der to ac­com­mo­date the in­creased host­ing of corporate events.

Mau­ri­tius is a par­tic­u­larly easy des­ti­na­tion to get around and there­fore makes for a very re­laxed time in be­tween meet­ings. In or­der to make the most of your time, it is ad­vis­able to rent a car - for longer trips - en­abling you to ex­plore all of the en­tic­ing cor­ners of the is­land in less than 90 min­utes.

How­ever, for the shorter busi­ness ex­cur­sion then taxi’s are in a boun­ti­ful sup­ply, and for a trip off­shore, cata­ma­rans will pro­vide the per­fect mode of trans­port to get you to the off­shore is­lands.

For get­ting around the main­land, if you have a lit­tle more time on your hands be­tween meet­ings, there are sev­eral re­li­able bus ser­vices op­er­at­ing around the is­land. Tak­ing the bus is of course the most eco­nom­i­cal form of trav­el­ling, and with newly air-con­di­tioned busses op­er­at­ing, it makes for quite the re­lax­ing and en­joy­able jour­ney around.

Mau­ri­tius has suc­cess­fully estab­lished it­self as a busi­ness hub on the Asia-Africa Air Cor­ri­dor
