Air Mauritius puts five aircraft up for sale to raise capital

Air Mauritius entered voluntary administration on April 22, 2020 as the result of the COVID-19 pandemic and grounding of the fleet, except for repatriation flights.

The airline has announced its international commercial passenger flights will remain suspended until August 31, 2020.

Auditors have suggested a possible liquidation of assets.

In order to raise immediate capital, the flag carrier has put five used aircraft (from a fleet of 13) up for immediate sale:

Two Airbus A319-100s (3B-NBF msn 1592 and 3B-NBH msn 1936)

One Airbus A330-200 (3B-NBL msn 1057)

Two Airbus A340-300s (3B-NBD msn 194 and 3B-NBE msn 268)

Most of the above aircraft were planned to be retired in the coming years anyway.
