Welcome to my new report, this time in Indian Ocean.
I went for work in Reunion Island and i decided to reach Mauritius which is REALLY different.
In this season, it's not so warm, but very pleasant.

So let's speak about this flight.

I decided to do this report as maybe it could be interesting to get additional pictures for this flight.

Rolland Garros Airport

They should do something for this terminal, they are renovating this airport to be able to handle an A380-800 and more B777-300. Let's hope they will work on our comfort as well.

Waiting for my suitcase, this new terminal (opened in August 2013) is really nice, you feel a bit like in a small DXB.

Conclusion

MRU is one of the best airport in the area, and RUN is unfortunately so far from this...
Airport is the first moment when tourists will begin to make an opinion about a country (remember few years ago with CDG...)

In addition, it's not the first time i'm flying there and i'm always astonished as Emirates, Condor or Swiss (with Edelweiss) are coming to MRU.
And in RUN, you'll just see traditionnal french airlines.
Maybe it would be interesting to pay for another Airlines as Ethiad or South African Airways during one year until they will make money on this new line...
Anyway i'll not change it for sure!

Take care and see you soon!
