We offer direct flights to Mauritius from the UK with Air Mauritius and British Airways. We also offer indirect services to Mauritius from several UK regional airports with Emirates, Turkish Airlines and KLM.
The flying time is approximately 12 hours with overnight outbound flights. Although this is definitely a longhaul flight the small time difference between the UK and Mauritius (3 hours in our summer and 4 in winter) means that jet lag is rarely a problem.
