Cargo service is as much an area of Air Mauritius' expertise as is passenger transportation. Our excellence in this service is supported by the high cargo hold capacity on our A350, A340, A330neo and A330 aircraft and our stringent quality policy.
Air Mauritius' strengths in the cargo business:
Our professional staff are trained to provide added value in sales, operations, customer service and handling of cargo. Our friendly and committed team is available round the clock to ensure a fast and efficient service.
Our network connectivity
Air Mauritius serves 22 direct and more than 100 beyond destinations across the 4 continents. We operate more than 80 weekly flights on wide-body aircraft. As the National Carrier, Air Mauritius ensures an efficient network of cargo services in order to promote trade, support local industries and also continue to contribute towards the economic development of the country.
The strategic position of Mauritius
At the crossroads between Africa, the Indian Ocean, Asia and Europe, Mauritius is a natural strategic transit hub for the operation of our cargo service. Another advantage is SSR International Airport's outstanding handling facilities.
The cargo terminal at the SSR International Airport has sufficient capacity to handle the existing import, export and transit traffic. It can even accommodate for further growth. Separate warehouses are available for perishables, dangerous goods, fragile, and valuable cargo.
In addition, Air Mauritius recently invested in modern infrastructure and state-of-the-art equipment to facilitate the transshipment of cargo. Air Mauritius can now execute ramp-to-ramp transfer to international standards within 90 minutes.
