Air Mauritius has been accredited with a 4-star rating by Skytrax, the British firm which reviews airlines all across the world.
Skytrax, the UK-based firm which reviews airline companies, awarded Air Mauritius the prestigious 4-star professional quality rating three days ago, on the 8th of July. Previously, Air Mauritius had been bestowed with a 3-star rating. Now, Air Mauritius has to keep up with the progress.
According to the CEO of Skytrax, Edward Plaisted, Air Mauritius would have to up the level by making the acquisition of a modern fleet equipped with technologically advanced options. In line with this, André Viljoen, the CEO of Air Mauritius, has proclaimed the intention of the company to buy 6 new aircrafts, of which are Airbus A 350 and Boeing 787.
The aim of the company is not to acquire the 5-star rating in the immediate future. Rather, the goal is to bring in more innovations by bringing in more modern airplanes and also, maintaining the quality and service of a 4-star airline. They want to live up to the status that they have earned.
To be able to attain its goals, the company intends to reduce their costs. For instance, the Airbus A 350 and Boeing 787 consume 25 % less fuel than the current aircrafts. They are more efficient and competitive. The image of the airline will thus be further boosted, according to the CEO.
