How does it connect at both ends?
2240 at CPT?...thats the end of the road, with no internal flights possible and not too desirable to be heading East up the N2 that time of night
I looked at using the Austrian flights as a means of getting to LHR earleir this year but could not secure a connecting flight....
Indeed, and what did you finally opt for?
Looking to visit CPT from May 2-6. Is this quiet time for tourism or will flights be busy?
May is the quietest month for international arrivals in Cape Town and the weather will still be decent. I think you'll have a great time!
As a follow up, our flight in on QR and flight out on EK both had 100+ open seats. It was great! The weather was also really nice, partly cloudy and sunshine. No rain. Loved loved loved Cape Town!
Night or day time flights? Nice if you could get a full row for everybody! Have you had a chance to visit around too?
Indeed Cape Town is awesome - too bad it takes so long to go there outside Africa haha!
Concerning the Asian network, flights do not connect that well, with long transit hours (+6 hours) for connecting passengers to Asia(Shanghai, Perth and Mumbai flights are operated on Tuesdays). On the return leg, flights from Singapore arrive in MRU at 18 45.
So, connection possibilities are rather small...
Too bad, as Asian pax appear to be their bread and butter - probably, when MK situation will improve in the (near) future, the schedules will match better.
MK will rely much on tourists combining both Mauritius and Seychelles as holiday destinations. A codeshare with Air France/British Airways/Turkish Airlines/Kenya Airways/Emirates/Edelweiss(obviously not all of them) could work, especially Air France, since many French tourists combine those 2 islands.
Another Indian Ocean island MK should look into is probably the Maldives.
Please forgive my ignorance about this area, but are these "three" islands not competiting which each other with honeymooners mainly?
So, just out of curiosity, can you shed the light on what Seychelles can offer different than Maldives other than culture and hotel related business?
Comoros service was planned to start last year, but never came.
Maybe, MK currently have other fish to fry, as HAH is - i guess - low yield seasonal VFR internationally. But unsure regionally!
Do you think, the airline will rebrand as Air Mauritius Regional or Air Maurice Comores or what else?
Don't want to make this political but our government wants to dictate every decision made by these SOEs,which will result in skilled personnel leaving these companies.
Any leak/idea about the future potential candidate and.... most important maybe her/his background?
The ERJ have the Zimbabwe Airways livery, the Air Zim ones were leased from Solenta and in think they are now with Fastjet
Nice one, thanks Chiki
. What about the 767?
Are the 777s already repossessed and already sold or it was just a sensational fake
