This Airbus A350-900 is the first of six Air Mauritius orders. Four will be purchased directly from Airbus and two will be rented from AerCap. Air Mauritius will introduce A350-900 aircraft on flights from Mauritius to Asia, Africa and Europe.

Air Mauritius already operates a fleet of 10 Airbus aircraft, including six A340-300, two A330-200 and two A319. They are used on regional and long-haul routes.

Returning to the first Airbus A350-900 Air Mauritius, I would like to point out that it is painted in a "50 year anniversary" livery.
