Ethiopian Airlines (Ethiopian), Africa’s most successful carrier, will start cargo service to Mauritius effective from 2 October.
Ethiopian has a developed pan-African passenger and cargo network. It also serves 127 other international destinations across five continents with a fleet which includes modern and environmentally-friendly aircraft.
Mauritius’ imports grew by eight per cent to $5.6 billion in 2018. The Indian Ocean island nation imports mineral fuels, oils and distillation products.
Other major Mauritian imports include machinery such as vehicles, nuclear reactors, boilers, electrical and electronic equipment, as well as fish including crustaceans, molluscs and aquatic invertebrates.
Mauritius currently imports more than it exports. Its main exports are apparel, meat, fish, seafood and either cane or beet sugar.
Tourism is the small island nation’s biggest revenue generator.
