Air Mauritius is intensifying its efforts to promote the air corridor. After several workshops and roadshows organized in various Asian and African markets since last year, Air Mauritius is now extending its reach in both continents.
Following workshops held in Japan & Korea, in December 2016, Air Mauritius. in collaboration with the Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority (MTPA) and Changi Airport Group, recently organized two Road Shows which were held on 22 February 2017 in Bangkok, Thailand and on 23 Feb 17 in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
Teams from Air Mauritius and the MTPA made presentations to explain the travel options offered by the Air Corridor in connecting Asia to Africa via Mauritius and Singapore. Both venues saw a full turnout of more than 70 participants from the travel trade and the media. Press briefings were also conducted to enable a broader reach of the Air Corridor promotion. Subsequently, several media channels followed-up with coverages of the Air Corridor.
Media and travel trade partners were eager participants in a raffle draw where winners were awarded free air tickets and accommodation in Mauritius.
