Thomas Cook Airlines makes a move on Mauritius

A total of 250 passengers boarded the A330-200 flight to Port Louis, Mauritius on 15 November, a 12-hour sector, to join their Fred Olsen cruise ship which will also visit the Seychelles, Comoros Islands and Réunion Island. The first flight passengers were treated to a tropical bon voyage at Manchester Airport, as they were each handed a floral lei garland and a delicious branded cupcake.

  • Thomas Cook Airlines began bi-weekly (Wednesdays) flights from Manchester (MAN) to Mauritius (MRU) in the Indian Ocean on 15 November. The leisure carrier will operate the 10,000-kilometre sector for cruise ship operator Fred Olsen, and it becomes the airline’s only service from the UK to the tropical island. Flown by its A330-200 fleet, the service faces no direct competition.
