Mauritius expects that direct Aeroflot flights from Russia will be launched within a few months, the issue is practically resolved, said the country’s ambassador to Moscow, Heswar Janke.
“Many Russians like to visit Mauritius, and Aeroflot and I are working on launching direct flights… The issue is almost closed, but there are several aspects that we are working on. And as an ambassador, I myself am waiting for direct flights to open. We are working on this since January last year, so now we hope that within a few months there will be direct flights,” the diplomat said.
According to him, not only direct flights with Russia are being worked out, but also an additional route Mauritius-Seychelles-Russia.
“Companies are working on this alternative with Aeroflot. The authorities sent a corresponding request to the Seychelles,” Janke explained.
