Air Mauritius due to mounting losses will reduce its nonstop route map

Air Mauritius (Port Louis) announced it lost $4.19 million in the third quarter and $27.3 million in the first nine months of its fiscal year.

Due to these mounting losses, rising fuel costs and increased competition, the company has also announced it will drop nonstop service to Frankfurt, Geneva, Milan and Munich in Europe in October 2012 as well as Bangalore (October 2012), Durban (October 2012) and Melbourne (May 2012).

In Europe, in partnership with Air France, the company will consolidate its operations at Paris (CDG) for onward flights to these European destinations.

Bangalore will be served via Mumbai, Durban via Johannesburg and Melbourne and Sydney via Perth.
