Friday, July 11, 2014 Air Mauritius has received a 4-Star professional quality rating by global airline ratings company Skytrax.
The Award was presented to Air Mauritius chairman Appalsamy (Dass) Thomas and chief executive André Viljoen by Edward Plaisted, chairman of Skytrax at a ceremony held at the Swami Vivekananda International Convention Centre.
Thomas said: “The 4-Star category places Air Mauritius in another league – among the world’s best 40 airlines. We now need to continue our efforts in order to sustain the improvements made and continue to deliver value to our customers. This is the only way to remain in the game in this highly competitive industry.”
Viljoen, who spearheaded the airline’s recovery and sustainability program known as the 7-Step Plan said: “We have come a long way from where we were three years ago. We took some tough decisions and revised our business model with the assistance of Seabury APG.”
