Edelweiss to fly charter to Pt. Louis


(eTN) – The subsidiary company of Swiss, Edelweiss, has just announced that they are planning a once-a-week flight between Zurich, Switzerland, and the Indian Ocean island of Mauritius for the forthcoming winter season.

It could not be established if the Mauritian authorities have relaxed their attitude towards all-inclusive tour charters some more, as in the past it was only scheduled airlines being permitted to fly to the island, but the fallout of the global economic crisis may well have triggered a change in mindset towards this policy, embracing any and all wanting to bring tourists to beaches of Mauritius.

In any case, for Swiss travelers intent to spend their vacation in Mauritius, this will be great news and undoubtedly make a holiday there more affordable.
