Dubai-based dnata, a leading global air and travel services provider, has partnered with Mauritius Tourism, the official tourism authority of the Indian Ocean island country, as it aims to attract more travelers from the UAE in 2024.

Mauritius Tourism has appointed dnata Representation Services as its sales, marketing, and PR representative in the UAE, to provide localized booking support and share top rates, the latest news, itineraries, and more from the destination with travelers across the country. The collaboration will focus on showcasing trending experiences for 2024, including the island’s diverse proposition beyond its famous shorelines.

In recent years, Mauritius has become an increasingly popular destination among UAE-based travelers. With an impressive 62 percent increase in travelers from the UAE to the country recorded by Mauritius Tourism between 2015 and 2023, passenger arrivals continue to show steady growth in 2024.

“Mauritius is a location known for its world-class beaches, but it offers much more for travelers seeking extraordinary adventures. From hiking in National Parks to enjoying diverse culinary experiences, some of the world’s most unique natural landscapes and picture-perfect golf courses, there’s something for everyone. We look forward to bringing the island’s host of authentic and meaningful experiences closer to the UAE’s avid traveler base in 2024.”

Popular locations across the island for UAE travelers include the beaches of Flic en Flac, Tamarin and Le Morne on its West and South West Coast, where the country witnesses its most sunshine, and offers some of its most impressive natural landscapes, luxury resorts, dining and entertainment options.

Donald Payen, Chairman of the Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority, said that, “Mauritius may be best known for its stunning, tropical landscapes including its exceptional beaches and azure waters, but a key element we want to showcase to UAE-based travelers is what Mauritius can offer ‘beyond the beach’. The island offers a harmonious melting pot of culture, traditions, abundant immersive experiences, and appetizing gastronomy. Our all-inclusive offering in four and five-star resorts is also impressive, and working with dnata we hope to bring top rates and experiences to the forefront for the UAE market.”

Travelers can connect directly to Mauritius from the UAE with Emirates’ double-daily service from Dubai operated by A380, at an approximate six-hour, 35-minute flight time.
