Find Transport expertise in Mauritius
Mauritius is approximately 1,865 sq km in size and the primary mode of transport is via road. There is a road network of about 2,020km in Mauritius, almost half of which are main roads, about 30% are secondary roads and less than 5% are motorways (2007). Mauritius has a fully modern airport, Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport, located in Plaisance, about 50km away from the capital, Port Louis; Air Mauritius is the main carrier. An airstrip at Plaine Corail on Rodrigues island runs a daily service to Mauritius. Port Louis maintains a deep-sea harbour; it is the main harbour and the only commercial port. Port facilities include a container terminal and terminals for the bulk handling of goods such as sugar, oil, wheat and cement. Mauritius functions as a freeport and therefore provides exemption of duties on goods imported into the free zone and access to local market and banking services.
