Air Mauritius Ensures Airworthiness Of Its Entire Fleet

Must Read

The management of Air Mauritius has taken cognizance of a press article published in the newspaper L’Express on Saturday 15 October 2022 with the title ‘La corrosion rouille les ATR d’Air Mauritius’. According to Air Mauritius, this article is defamatory in nature and refers to the condition of Air Mauritius’ ATR 72-500 aircraft. From the outset, Air Mauritius points out that the information that has been published and coming from an anonymous source, is unfounded and erroneous, and thus, damages the reputation of its company.

Here are the points of this press release:

  1. Air Mauritius would like to clarify that two of the three ATRs it owns are operational and that the third aircraft of this type, registration number 3B-NBN, is currently undergoing a complete scheduled overhaul (C Check).
  2. The identification of any form of corrosion is an integral part of the activities of a C Check. Once the corrosion is identified, repairs are undertaken in accordance with the procedures established by the ATR manufacturer.
  3. Additional work that is required as the rigorous inspections continue during the C-Check may delay the return to service of the affected aircraft in some cases.
  4. All Air Mauritius aircraft are subject to scheduled complete overhauls at regular intervals according to a specific schedule.
  5. Air Mauritius ensures the airworthiness of its entire fleet under a highly controlled regulatory system established by the relevant authorities, namely the Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) of Mauritius. Air Mauritius holds all the necessary approvals to operate its aircraft safely.
  6. The maintenance programs developed by Air Mauritius for its ATR 72-500 aircraft are based on official documents issued by the manufacturer ATR.
  7. The engineers who carry out the maintenance programs are duly qualified and authorized. We salute the professionalism of the entire Technical Services Department which works tirelessly to ensure that the aircraft under maintenance are brought back on line as soon as possible while respecting the established standards.

Air Mauritius reiterates that the safety of its passengers and staff remains its top priority and reserves the right to take legal action against any malicious and intentional act aimed at tarnishing its image and reputation.
