You can now use Aeroplan points with Air Mauritius, which is joining the program as an airline partner.
New Aeroplan Partner
Air Mauritius is the national carrier of Mauritius. The airline operates flights between MRU and its main hubs: Paris-Charles-de-Gaulle (CDG) and London-Heathrow (LHR).
But it also offers :
- Rodrigues Island
Through this partnership, Aeroplan is expanding its presence in the Indian Ocean region. As a result, it offers more space and choice in the sector’s high-end leisure destinations.
First, Air Mauritius was created in 1967, thanks to a partnership between Air France, British Airways and the government of Mauritius.
Its air fleet is composed of these aircraft:
- Airbus A330-900neo
- Airbus A350-900
- ATR 72-500
For example, here is the business class on its Airbus A350-900, similar to what Asiana offers:
How to collect Aeroplan points with Air Mauritius
At this time, Aeroplan members can only redeem points for Air Mauritius flights. Flights eligible for exchange are in business and economy class.
Aeroplan points are expected to be earned on this airline in early 2022.
How to book Air Mauritius flights
Here are the details you need to know when booking Aeroplan flight rewards on Air Mauritius:
- Flights are priced according to Aeroplan’s airline partnerpricing
- Members will be able to book Air Mauritius flights on aircanada.com, on the Air Canada mobile app or through the Aeroplan Centre
- These flights may be combined with flights operated by Air Canada or other international airline partners
Mauritius is located in the Atlantic zone according to the Aeroplan reward chart.
Thus, it is necessary to calculate according to the distance travelled and the zones.
For example, in the Atlantic Zone, a flight between Paris (CDG) and Sir Sewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport (MRU) has a distance of 5,858 miles.
This means that it will cost :
- 35,500 points one-way economy class
- 60,000 points one-way in business class
From Canada, the greater of the distance between the North America Zone and the Atlantic Zone will apply:
- 70,000 one-way economy points
- 100,000 points one-way in business class
The addition of Air Mauritius comes on the heels of Oman Air, which we reported on just two weeks ago.
This is the tenth airline to join the program since June 2020. And it won’t end there as Aeroplan promises to announce more airline partners in the coming months. All bets are off!
