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.
