Mauritius flight FAQs

When is the cheapest time to fly to Mauritius?

Throughout the year, Mauritius offers a mild tropical maritime climate. The cheapest time to fly to Mauritius is from October to March, which spans part of the humid summer season. January and February are typically the warmest months, while February and March are the wettest months. Luckily, the rain only lasts from few minutes to a few hours, still allowing you plenty of sunshine. Flight prices rise from April through September during the wedding and honeymoon season.

How long is the flight from London to Mauritius?

Around 12 hours. You’ll fly direct from London Gatwick (LGW) to Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport (MRU) in Mauritius. British Airways direct flights to Mauritius depart three times a week from March to November and increases to five times a week from November to March. Additional flights, via Johannesburg, South Africa, depart from London Heathrow (LHR).

How do I get from the Mauritius airport to my resort?

Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport (MRU) is located on the main port island of Mauritius. While the public buses on Mauritius are very affordable, the journey times can be especially long. For a quicker and less stressful journey to your hotel, pre-book an airport transfer before you travel. You can add the door-to-door transfer once you have booked your Mauritius flight or holiday. For more flexibility throughout your entire trip, book a hire car with British Airways. Car hire will allow you to independently explore the scenic island.
