Exclusive: Air Mauritius to halve widebody fleet

  • Commentson this article: 0

Air Mauritius is to operate a widebody fleet of four aircraft over the next three years, according to an internal document seen by Airfinance Journal.

The document said the African carrier’s fleet will include three ATR72-500s and four widebody Airbus aircraft from 1 March, 2021.

Air Mauritius' current fleet includes two Airbus A319s, three ATR72-500s, two A350-900s, two A330-900s, two A340-300s and two A330-200s, according to Airfinance Journal’s Fleet Tracker.

Last November, Air Mauritius officer in charge Indradev Buton said that the African carrier was looking to build its future fleet around the A320neo and A350 models and was likely to phase out all its Airbus A330-200s as part of its restructuring plan.

Last year the African carrier advertised the sale of two A340-300s, one A330-200 and two A319s.

Air Mauritius has been in administration since April 2020.

Its chief administrators, Sattar Abdoula and Arvindsingh Gokhool, have obtained court approval to delay the presentation of a new business plan until June 2021.
