Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority shows travel industry solidarity

Arvind Bundhun, director of the Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority, has released a statement to express his support for its tourism industry partners during this challenging time.

He said that the tourism partners are "the architects of the success" of Mauritius' tourism sector and thanked all the operators for their timely response to the COVID-19 pandemic: “I would like to thank all the operators who made courageous decisions and answered the call from the country. I would also like to thank at the same time the hotels who agreed to host the quarantined guests, the operators who transported them and the entire aviation sector, in particular Air Mauritius, which continued to provide services so that our visitors could return to their countries. My eternal gratitude also goes to the medical staff in Mauritius who are working on the front line to provide expert care to those in need.”

In particular, he highlighted the importance of UK and European markets to the country's tourism industry with the announcement of a new campaign, The Colours of Mauritius, which is aimed specifically at UK, French and German markets.

“Very soon, the sun will rise again in the Mauritian sky, making our azure lagoons sparkle and warming our beaches. Soon you will be greeted once again with the smile of your Mauritian friends and our warm welcome,” he said.
