Mauritius, small island lost in the Indian Ocean, has always made itself shine and, sometimes, even outshine others; small in size, but great in potential. The SSR international Airport has earned the title of best airport in the Indian Ocean by the international organisation Skytrax.
Skytrax is a company based in the UK, responsible for ranking and reviewing airlines and airports. It carries out surveys to determine which is the best airline and airport around the world. It gives out a plethora of awards to the elected ones: best airport, best airline, best onboard catering, just to mention a few.
It is indeed a matter of great honour and privilege that the airport of Mauritius has surpassed the other countries in the region, like Reunion Island, the Seychelles, and the Maldives. The new airport infrastructure has also earned Mauritius the 4th place among the best airports of Africa. Furthermore, the Mauritian airport also appears on the 6th position for the award of best airport staff in Africa, and it also ranks 10th for the world’s best airport serving under 5 million passengers.
The extension of the new airport terminal began last year and by 2015, the SSR International Airport will also have its new receptorium.
