Virgin Adds Mauritius Service

Beginning in November, Virgin Atlantic Airways will launch direct service between London's Gatwick airport and the island of Mauritius, off the coast of Africa. The flight, Virgin's first over the Indian Ocean, will operate on Mondays and Fridays using a Boeing 747-400 aircraft, which house 14 first class seats, 58 premium economy seats and 379 economy seats. "This new route shows that we are continuing to build a long-haul network with the ideal mix of business and leisure routes for today's traveler," said Sir Richard Branson, chairman of Virgin Atlantic, who added, "The launch of services will lead to increased competition, better value for money and quality of service."
