Dubai: Emirates has announced the addition of three frequencies to its present 11 weekly flights to Mauritius. The service to the paradise island will be twice daily beginning December 2.

The 12th weekly flight was introduced on October 31 and two further frequencies will be added on December 2. They will be serviced by a Boeing 777-300 in a three-class configuration. Emirates flight EK3705 will depart Dubai at 10am, arriving in Mauritius at 4:45pm. The return journey from Mauritius, EK3706 will depart at 6:20pm, arriving in Dubai at 0110hrs the following day.

In January this year, Emirates and the government of Mauritius signed an agreement aimed at jointly promoting the island destination across the airline’s global network. The two parties have engaged in the development of a series of joint activities to increase the visibility and awareness around the island in the 126 destinations to which the airline flies.
