Dubai-based Emirates Airlines on Thursday announced it will restart passenger services to Mauritius this summer.

The airline will fly two weekly flights from July 15 as the island-nation gradually reopens its borders to international tourists.

According to the Emirates Airlines, the passengers can also enjoy other Indian Ocean destinations, as the airline offers 28 weekly flights to Maldives and seven weekly flights to Seychelles.

Only Thursdays and Saturdays, the Emirates will operate its flights to Mauritius. The airline flight will depart from Dubai International Airport at 2:35hrs and arrive in Mauritius at 9:10hrs local time.

The return flight will operate on Fridays and Sundays. Flight EK704 will depart from Mauritius at 23:10hrs and arrive in Dubai at 5:45hrs local time, the following day.

From July 15, the borders will be reopened only for vaccinated Mauritian nationals and foreign tourists. From Oct.1, the island-nation will start to welcome fully vaccinated foreigners who can explore the country freely with no coronavirus curbs.

The Emirates has also announced it will deploy its iconic Emirates A380 aircraft to Mauritius starting from Aug.1.

Starting from July 15, the route will be served utilising a Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, and from Aug.1, the A380 aircraft of the airline.

From luscious landscapes, crystal clear water and white sandy beaches –  the island-nation remains one the most favourit holiday destinations, attracting travellers across the Middle East, Europe and Americas.
