Last Updated: June 07, 2024

A smaller airline, Air Mauritius’ on-time performance has hovered in the mid 70% range over the last six months according to Flighteria.

So, if you’re headed to this island on Air Mauritius, you can expect the same rights as passengers travelling on other EU airlines. This means that if your flight is delayed, cancelled, overbooked, or you miss your connection flight, you can receive compensation. Let’s take a closer look.

Your Passenger Rights

When you travel with Air Mauritius, your rights are protected by EU and UK law when you depart from airports located in these regions. EU261 and UK261 were both created to protect you and to ensure your fair treatment if you encounter delays, cancellations, missed connections or denied boarding situations caused by overbooking.

Because of these regulations, the carrier must supply you with care and/or cash compensation depending on:

  • The length of your delay and
  • The source of the flight disruption

Your entitlements include:

  • Care and assistance (meals, refreshments, access to communication)
  • Cash compensation
  • Alternate flights
  • Refunds

Air Mauritius Delayed Flights

You’re headed to a sunny vacation resort, and then, you have a flight delay. Yes, it’s a huge inconvenience to be sure, but you can rely on your air passenger rights to soften the blow.

If you’re delayed for 2 hours or more, you’re entitled to care and assistance, meaning you will be able to receive free food and refreshments as well as access to communication.

For delays of at least 3 hours past your scheduled arrival time, Air Mauritius must compensate you financially for your trouble, but this will only happen when they are to blame for the delay.

If your flight is delayed by 5 or more hours, you must be given the choice of a refund or a rescheduled flight plus cash compensation when the carrier is at fault.

Length of Delay

Compensation & Entitlements

2+ hour delays

Meals, refreshments, and access to communication

3+ hour delays

Cash compensation if the airline is at fault

5+ hour delays

Option of rebooking or refund + potential cash compensation

Early claims have an 72% higher chance of payout

Act now before your claim expires

Cancelled Flights

Cancelled flights are less common than flight delays, but they make up for it with added inconvenience. They can lead to a cascade of problems, but fortunately, EU and UK regulations will allow you some compensation for your trouble.

Cancellation of 14-days or more before departure: You will be entitled to a rebooked flight at no extra charge or a refund.

Cancellation with less than14-days notice: Air Mauritius must supply you with:

  • Rescheduled flight or
  • Cash refund
  • Care and assistance (for delays at the airport that last 2 hours or more)
  • Overnight hotel accommodation and transport for delays that require you to wait until the next day
  • Cash compensation if the disruptions was not due to extraordinary events

Air Mauritius Involuntary Denied Boarding

As with all airlines, Air Mauritius will occasionally sell more tickets than seats available on the plane in order to ensure a fully booked flight. Known as overbooking, this situation can lead to some passengers who check in late or have no status as a frequent flyer, to face involuntary denied boarding. If this happens to you, the carrier is required to give you:

  • A replacement flight or
  • A refund and
  • Cash compensation

However, if you were refused boarding because of behaviour unruly or because you arrived at the gate without the proper documents, then you will not be eligible for cash compensation.

Missed Connections

EU and UK passenger rights also protect you when you have missed connections. At times when your earlier flights were delayed or cancelled, causing you to miss your connection, Air Mauritius must offer you an alternate flight to your connection point or to your final destination. You could also get cash compensation if no extraordinary circumstances were to blame.

Cash Compensation Amounts

The amount of cash compensation you receive is based on:

  • The extent or your delay
  • The distance of your flight.

Delay Time

Flight Distance


Flights under 1,500km

Flights between 1,500-3,500km

Flights over 3,500km

Over 3 hours




Under 3 hours



*Air Mauritius might try to reduce this amount by as much as 50%, but AirAdvisor always works to get the full amount.

We work on a No-Win, No-Fee basis

AirAdvisor is happy to help with your claim, so you can avoid the stress of dealing with airlines and complicated laws.

Extraordinary Circumstances

Airlines are exempt from paying compensation when extraordinary circumstances are at play. Because of this, if your delay or cancellation was due to any of the following situations, then Air Mauritius won’t be liable for compensation payments to its passengers.

Examples of extraordinary circumstances


PRO TIP: Try to find out what caused your flight disruptions. Why? Because airlines will usually try to use extraordinary circumstances as an excuse to avoid compensation, having proof of what caused your flight disruption will really help your case.

If you need help, you can let AirAdvisor take care of your compensation claim for you. Our team of legal experts can find out what caused your flight disruption, file your claim, and follow up with the airline so you get the full amount that you’re owed.

Charles from United Kingdom (Air Mauritius MK 53 Flight cancellation)
May 28, 2024, 7:14 am

The airline put us up in a hotel at Gatwick. We were put on a flight the next day and arrived at our destination 24 late, we lost the first day of our holiday. We received a phone call as we were getting into the airport. The airline paid for our hotel, dinner and breakfast. Losing a day of our holiday was very disappointing

This was our return journey from Mauritius. We had a ticket with KLM from Amsterdam-Paris-Mauritius (7th May). We did not check in in Amsterdam, due to Schiphol concerns thus went by train from Amsterdam to Paris and checked in to the flight in Paris to Mauritius. Because we did this, (not checking in in Amsterdam) KLM has cancelled our back flight ticket from Mauritius to Paris, and from Paris to Amsterdam. They did not even notify us, just removed us from passenger list. We had to buy our ticket again at the airport on 21th May for roughly 3x price. (this time directly from Air Mauritius, they could not get connected to KLM who has deleted our ticket) We also had to manage our journey from Paris to Amsterdam by train because there was no available flight anymore. I have contacted KLM customer service and they opened a case, but by checking its status I cannot find the file anymore, since then I cannot contact them. So there is literally nobody who assist me in this case. The whole interruption costed us nearly 3.000 EUR plus and 4 hours delay in getting back to Amsterdam.

The flight in Mauritius was confirmed to be delayed 2h10 upon arrival. We had to leave at 22H50, finally we left around 3h. Because of that, we missed our connection. THe second they put us on, we missed because of the amount of people and waiting time in the airport. Finally they got us on 2 other flights, we were supposed to arrive at 10h35, we were in the airport around 18h. We missed 3 suitcases as well, that got delivered 24h later.
