Air Mauritius was incorporated in June 1967 and it started its operations modestly with a Piper-Navajo. The destiny of Air Mauritius is forged in the ambition of the people of Mauritius who, since accession to independence, refused the perspective of isolation. The first flights to the Sister-island of La Reunion favoured the taking off of a regional identity. From there, with the symbol of the Phaeton Rubicola, the legendary bird commonly called Paille-en-Queue; Air Mauritius has drawn new routes over the oceans to link continents. In this way a tradition was instituted; a tradition made up of the constant need to evolve towards renewed horizons.
