London to Mauritius in 10 replay screenshots

We departed London Gatwick airport, London, UK on TUI flight BY58 for what is, in my opinion, the best named airport I have ever heard - Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport on the island of Mauritius. It’s the first visit to this airport on Infinite Flight and it was well worth it - a lovely little island in the Indian Ocean with some great scenery as well. All holidaymakers onboard today, some returning home after travels in the UK and some going to get some sun and beach action for a week or so, all packaged nicely by TUI.

It was a bumpy departure out of London with the Autumnal winds and weather kicking in here in the UK and it was great to see the wings of the Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner flexing once more in that great TUI livery. Our path took us over Europe including Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, Greece and the Mediterranean pushing through Egypt, Sudan, Ethiopia, Kenya, Madagascar finally finding Sir Seewoosagur.

Interesting first time approach into Mauritius and some lessons learned for next time? Well, there was a monster mountain slap bang in the middle of our path (not pictured) and whilst the passengers enjoyed the view, it was a bit too close for my liking at about 2,500 feet nearing the peak. A bit of map investigation reveals it to be the highest mountain in Mauritius, namely Piton de la Petite Rivière Noire in the Rivière Noire District. It got the holiday makers some good snaps, so it was worth it.

Good times.


That second one is too good to be true… Amazing!
