Air Mauritius puts five aircraft up for sale to raise capital
Air Mauritius entered voluntary administration on April 22, 2020 as the result of the COVID-19 pandemic and grounding of the fleet, except for repatriation flights.
The airline has announced its international commercial passenger flights will remain suspended until August 31, 2020.
Auditors have suggested a possible liquidation of assets.
In order to raise immediate capital, the flag carrier has put five used aircraft (from a fleet of 13) up for immediate sale:
Two Airbus A319-100s (3B-NBF msn 1592 and 3B-NBH msn 1936)
One Airbus A330-200 (3B-NBL msn 1057)
Two Airbus A340-300s (3B-NBD msn 194 and 3B-NBE msn 268)
Most of the above aircraft were planned to be retired in the coming years anyway.
