Air Mauritius will move its operations from London Heathrow to London Gatwick from October 29.
As part of the move, on the same day the airline will also boost frequencies from five flights a week to a daily service to Gatwick.
The route will be operated by A350-900 and A330-900neo aircraft configured in business and economy class.

Krešimir Kučko, CEO of Air Mauritius, said the move and increased frequency formed part of Air Mauritius’s 50 years of operations to the UK in November.
“This strategic move allows Air Mauritius to meet increasing demand on this historic route while using its most environmentally friendly types of aircraft. London Gatwick Airport is located south of Central London and is easily accessible. We are confident that this new service will further strengthen our relationship with valued customers from the UK and the connecting markets,” Kučko added.
