KUALA LUMPUR, June 24 (Bernama) -- AirAsia MOVE, the region’s leading OTA continues to expand its list of airline partners by onboarding Air Mauritius, the national airline of the island of Mauritius as its latest direct airline partner.

Thank you for giving AirAsia MOVE the trust to market your extensive route network spanning many continents to the over 15 million monthly active users on our platform.
