On Monday (June 19, 2023), Airbus announced from the Paris Air Show that Air Mauritius has confirmed an order for three A350 aircraft. The carrier currently operates four A350s and three A330s. The Airbus A350 is the world’s most efficient widebody aircraft and the long range leader in the 300-410 seat category with a range of up to 9,700 nautical miles. With a clean sheet design, new generation engines and the use of lightweight materials, the state-of-the-art A350 offers unrivalled standards of efficiency and comfort. The A350 is also the quietest aircraft in its class, delivering a 50 percent noise footprint reduction compared to previous generation aircraft.
In Monday’s announcement, Air Mauritius’ CEO, Mr. Kresimir Kucko, said,
“Air Mauritius is proud to renew its confidence in Airbus and its products, continuing a three-decade long partnership. The additional A350-900 aircraft will help us strengthen our European network and secure further growth in other markets. We are looking forward to achieving our ambition objectives together with Airbus.”
Also commenting on the A350 order, Airbus’ Chief Commercial Officer and Head of International, Christian Scherer, said, “We compliment Air Mauritius on putting the A350 at the heart of its long-haul fleet modernisation programme. With greater range capability, better economics, passenger capacity and comfort, the A350 is the perfect platform to connect the beautiful island of Mauritius to the world.” With nearly 1,000 firm orders from 54 customers worldwide, the Airbus A350 Family is one of the most successful widebody aircraft ever.
