In response to the much anticipated ‘Indian Ocean Fever’ in 2010, Air Austral has launched their new competitive year-round fare from Sydney to the exotic region, effective immediately.
CEO of Air Austral, Mr Gerard Etheve, says anticipation of the FIFA World Cup in South Africa has fuelled the hype, establishing the Indian Ocean as the world’s ‘hottest’ region to visit in 2010.
“With South Africa hosting one of the biggest international events, this presents the best opportunity for us to showcase our amazing destinations to the world,” says Mr Etheve.
Fares from Sydney to Reunion and Mauritius start from $1,236.90, South Africa (Johannesburg) from $1,951.90, Madagascar (Antananarivo) from $1,500.80 and the Seychelles from $2,009.40, inclusive of taxes.
Air Austral has an interline agreement in Australia with Virgin Blue, and competitive fares are also available from Melbourne, Adelaide and Brisbane to the Indian Ocean.
