The new Air Austral and Air Madagascar strategic partnership is being seen as a move for a new force in the Indian Ocean. It was on the 30th November of last year that Air Austral entered into a partnership with Air Madagascar with 409% shares.
In the arena when competition has been intensifying on the run Paris - La Reunion, Air Austral has been developing a strategy of diversification to be better positioned as the leader on the Indian Ocean Route.
With this partnership Air Austral is planning to reinforce its regional network with added services to new Madagascar airports and will be able to offer a more comprehensive network in the Indian Ocean with flights programmed to Mauritius, Seychelles, Mayotte over and above Madagascar.
Congratulations to Air Austral and Air Madagascar in this consolidation of resources. The Indian Ocean Vanilla Islands is in need of better air connectivity to be able to continue the development of two or three island holiday packages for key tourism source markets.
