It has been revealed via Airbus’ Orders & Deliveries for November 2023 that Air Mauritius has placed an order for one more A350-900 aircraft.

This order represents another big step for the island-based carrier, as tourism demand for the local areas continue.

Without further ado, let’s get into it…

Delivery timetable for this particular Airbus A350-900 ordered by Air Mauritius is still unclear at this time.

As per data from Planespotters.net, the carrier currently has four units of the aircraft type in commercial service, holding an average fleet age of 5.1 years.

Other long-haul aircraft that complement the Airbus A350-900 are the four A330s that the airline also has in it’s fleet, but are over double the age, with an average of 11.0 years.

Slowly but surely, aircraft will be phased out and renewed as well as being utilised for ultimate route expansion moving forward.

For November 2023, the European planemaker scored 113 gross orders, which consists of the following:

  • 30 A220-300s for airBaltic (Dubai Airshow).
  • 60 A320neos for SMBC Aviation.
  • 15 A350-900s for Emirates (Dubai Airshow).
  • 2 A320neo & 2 A321neo for British Airways.
  • 2 A320neos for Aer Lingus.
  • 1 A330-900neo for Air Lease Corporation.
  • 1 A350-900 for Air Mauritius.

For net orders, there was 52 cancellations, which means that year to date, Airbus has secured a total of 1,395 orders.

Looking ahead, all eyes will be on whether we will see anymore incremental orders from the island-based carrier, or whether this will be it for the time being.

But for now, all eyes will be on Airbus to see how they finish off the year with net orders, as well as whether there will be any last-minute blockbuster deals to close the year off.
