"The Air Mauritius service to Shanghai via Kuala Lumpur, inaugurated on the 4th of July 2011 has returned positive results. It has substantially stimulated demand from the Chinese market with a growth of 38.3% in the number of arrivals from China registered for the period January to September 2012.
Fully aware of the need to rebalance growth to emerging markets and given the scale of China’s outbound tourism and the opportunities for growth that this represents for Mauritius’ tourist industry, Air Mauritius is pleased to announce that effective 24th January 2013 it will operate two direct weekly flights to Shanghai."
