Mauritius: Air Mauritius orders 6 aircraft Airbus A350 XWB

The Mauritian national airline company, Air Mauritius, has recently opted for the modernisation of its long-carrier fleet.
Air Mauritius has signed a protocol agreement with the European aircraft manufacturer Airbus for the control of six A350-900 - four to purchase and two for rent – during the international Airshow of Farnborough implanted in and around London and which opened its doors on Monday, July 14, 2014.
The six A350 XWB aircraft will be in service on the European, Asian and Australian air routes of Air Mauritius.
Air Mauritius currently operates 10 Airbus, including two A330-200 aircraft, six aircraft type A340-300 and two A319, as reported by aeroweb - site.
"The A350 XWB, combined with our A330, perfectly meet the needs of all of the long-carrier network of Air Mauritius, and will play a key role in the modernisation of our fleet, while significantly reducing our operating costs and our environmental footprint. Consistent with our expectations, the A350 XWB will change the situation. These devices, which feature a high level of comfort and low fuel consumption, integrate perfectly within our existing Airbus fleet, and our passengers can thus benefit from a high level of services and comfort across our product range," said André Viljoen, Director-general of Air Mauritius.
