Mauritius, the evergreen island off the east coast of Africa, is known for its tropical temperatures all year-round, its stunning scenery with mountains, waterfalls and rugged cliffs, its white sandy beaches and blue lagoons with crystal clear water. The island is not only a paradise for water sport enthusiasts but also for those seeking relaxation. Mauritius’ hospitality industry has recently invested millions of dollars in its hotels, infrastructure and visitor attractions, including refurbishing luxury hotels, spas and wellness centers, to provide holidaymakers and business travelers with the very best in accommodation and amenities.

Arvind Bundhun, Director of Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority:
“We are excited to reappoint AVIAREPS as our representative in Germany and Austria. The company has been a reliable and strong partner since 2006 and we look forward to continue our cooperation with them. Mauritius is open and ready to welcome tourists again from all over the world. Tourism accounts for more than 25 per cent of our nation’s GDP and employs many thousands of people directly and indirectly, so we are extremely pleased to welcome visitors to our shores. Travelers are choosing Mauritius for its beaches, mountains, lagoons and business opportunities but also for its safety and security. As it stands, 90% of Mauritius’ adult population is fully vaccinated and our booster dose campaign is at full swing. We look forward to welcoming business and leisure travelers from Germany and Austria to Mauritius and our travel and hospitality industry is ready to warmly welcome them to our paradise island in the Indian Ocean.”
Thomas Drechsler, COO Tourism, AVIAREPS:
“We are honored that our long-standing client MTPA reappointed us as their official representative in Germany and Austria. We are looking forward to utilizing our knowledge of the local markets and our strong trade and media connections to bring Mauritius’ unique offerings to travelers from Germany and Austria. With our large network and the creative ideas of our teams, we will help to restore and increase the visitor numbers from these markets, and will successfully support the tourism recovery process in Mauritius.”
