Air Mauritius was set up in June 1967 (1967-06).[1] The airline had no aircraft at the beginning, and in January 1972 (1972-01), Air India started flying the Port LouisBombay–Port Louis run on Air Mauritius' behalf using Boeing 707 equipment; this was Air Mauritius' first route.[2]

As of July 2011, the Air Mauritius route network consists of 26 destinations in Africa, Asia, Europe, and Oceania. Shanghai became the 26th destination served by the company in early July 2011 (2011-07).[3] In February 2012 (2012-02), the airline announced the suspension of some non-profitable routes, starting with Milan, Melbourne, and Sydney, effective May 2012 (2012-05).[4][5][6] Services to these destinations were scheduled to end late that month;[7] as of March 2013, services to these cities are flown by Air France and Virgin Australia, connecting with Air Mauritius flights at Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Perth Airport, respectively.[8] During 2012, the airline also suspended its services to Frankfurt and Geneva due to poor demand.[9] As of April 2013, the airline's five top routes in terms of available seats are MauritiusReunion, Mauritius–Paris, Mauritius–Johannesburg, Mauritius–Antananarivo and Mauritius–London; the biggest international markets served by the carrier in terms of seat capacity are Southern Africa and Western Europe.[9]
