Unhappy Air Mauritius - all you need to know about MK (threads merged)

Scuttlebutt is that Air Mauritius may be in the market for crews. Does any one have an email and postal address for them and any further info about the company such as what they're like to work for, chances for advancement and all that other stuff that keeps us awake at night. Much obliged folks....

I know of 3 Air Zimbabwe guys who left for mauritius, the last one R Paterson left in February. I think they are looking for crews. Try their web site to get any info on address application etc.

Hope this helps and best of luck.

Thanks for the gen. Tried their web site and got a load of info but unfortunately all aimed at the punters and not at us wannabes. Would be grateful for any other information such as an email address as the particular bit of the sticks I'm in at the moment has a pretty dodgy postal system.

Skybiter - don't know of an email address, but you can try faxing them at +230 6373190 attention Capt D. Paturau (Chief Pilot).

They've just taken on 17 new F/Os, don't know if they're looking for any more.

Working for them? On the flying side they're a great airline (the 340 fleet, anyway.) Salary and conditions not particularly good. The big problem is whether you can hack living on the Island, not always everyone's cup of tea, (though maybe better than where you are now?)

I think the chances for command have reduced considerably of late, a lot of the locals are starting to get towards the hours needed and will obviously get priority over expats. Up till now, it's been about 4 years before you could expect to start thinking about a command (on the jets, the ATR is different.) But they're supposed to be getting A319s soon, so that might change the equation again.

If you want to try snailmail, try:-
Air Mauritius
Flight Operations
SSR International Airport
Mauritius

Hope this helps.

Question Air Mauritius info sought??

Have tried unsuccesfully on other sections of this forum but not much luck. Since alot of you guys are geographically closer thought someone may help.
Can anyone provide any info on the Air Mauritius job? ie pay,currency,tax,perks(if any),company,lifestyle etc,etc,etc.
Hoping someone has experienced it or knows of someone who has.
If not on the forum feel free to email to [email protected].

Thanks.

Did you apply for a position there?

I'm also after info and would be interested to know if anyone has an interview yet. Or if anyone has any info on the interview process?

Cheers

I'm under the impression you need to be married to be accepted. Your spouse will probably not receive a work permit.

The guys I know there are generally happy although I've heard a bit of niggling with management goes on.

Cool

hi guys!
right now, they undergoe interviews but only for airbus a-320/330/340 typed dudes. Unfortunatly they got a nice little pool of qualified guys from sabena (the belgium carrier is doing bad) and also a couple of guys from virgin...but might not be sufficient as emirates singapore and cathay are attracting most of the airbus drivers available.
Good luck to you all...
and regarding contract details, I don't know much.

Supply an email address and I will be able to put you in touch with pilots working there. Don't want to give their addresses on the open forum. I will contact you as soon as I have it. The sooner the better. I leave for London tomorrow evening.

Hi Intheslot. I sent you a personal message, did you receive it? We should meet at the Three Tuns pub across the road from Thistle Marble Arch, say between 13h00 and 14h00 local London time on Friday 25 August.

If you read the initial question (thread) you will see that proffessional comments were asked for, why dont you stick to that for the moment?
