Welcome to Mauritius


Mauritius, officially the Republic of Mauritius is an island nation in the Indian Ocean about 1,200 miles off the south-east coast of Africa. The country includes the islands of Mauritius, Rodrigues, Agaléga, and St. Brandon. The islands of Mauritius and Rodrigues form part of the Mascarene Islands. The capital and largest city, Port Louis, is located on the main island of Mauritius. The country is 790 square miles in area.

Along with the other Mascarene Islands, Mauritius is known for its varied flora and fauna, with many species endemic to the island. The island was the only known home of the dodo, which, along with several other avian species, was made extinct by human activities relatively shortly after the island’s settlement.

Reserving a gate is simple and open to ALL pilots!

Please post your chosen gate, destination airport, airline, and callsign down below! Make sure that the gate you’re requesting is not yet taken by someone else and is the proper size for your aircraft. Also confirm that the destination you choose is part of the route list above.

Note that your gate may be upgraded. For example, if all of the smaller gates are taken up, you might be assigned a gate that is larger than your aircraft needs.

Please reference ifatceg.com for all aircraft sizes.
