Staff writer |
Mauritius and Singapore will this month launch an Air Corridor Agreement aimed at linking Africa and South East Asia, Enterprise Mauritius (EM) has said.

EM said this agreement will help Mauritius to bridge Asia and Africa and vice versa.

“This agreement will be officially launched this month and is expected to transform Mauritius into a regional aviation hub. In the same vein, discussions have been initiated between Swaziland and Mauritius on the avenues of co-operation in relation to the Air Corridor between Africa and Asia/South East Asia using Mauritius and Singapore as Hubs,” it said.

The agreement is in line with the economic vision of Mauritius to transform the islander into one of the biggest aviation hub of the region and to firmly establish the country as the star and key of the Indian Ocean.

Mauritian Prime Minister said that the Air Corridor will be more than just a gateway which will give access to destinations in Africa and Indian Ocean as more than 90 destinations in Asia will also benefit from this agreement through the subsidiaries of Singapore Airlines, namely Silk Air and Tiger Airways.
