Business Class Deal: Athens to Mauritius for $825 Roundtrip

Written by Charlie

Why not combine two awesome beach destinations for a big vacation? This business class deal from Athens to Mauritius can help you do that for $825 roundtrip!

While a lot of the attention for the island destinations in the Indian Ocean goes to the Maldives and the Seychelles, Mauritius should not be overlooked! It has some amazing looking beaches as well and has been popular with luxury-seeking travelers for quite a while. Fortunately, point hotels do exist there and this airfare deal can get you there at a nice price!

The Deal

This deal is available with Saudia airlines and has a somewhat long layover both directions in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia (10 hours going, 13 hours coming). They are overnight layovers in both directions, though, so you could possibly grab a hotel for your short stay – or just stay in a lounge.

Saudia is a Skyteam partner so you can credit these tickets to Delta (or find a different airline here). The price of $825 for over 17 hours of business class is not a bad deal at all! It even includes Saudia’s 787 Dreamliner on the almost 7 hour journey to and from Jeddah to Mauritius (MRU).

The Dates

The dates are departing on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday out of Athens (in the afternoon) and the price is the same if you are doing a direct turnaround or if you are staying longer. The return dates are Tuesday and Thursdays.

The deal is available all the way through the end of their schedule on most of the dates that they fly. In other words, it is pretty wide open.

The Destination

I have not been to Mauritius but it is on my list to visit. However, having read about it and seeing various trip reports, I know it is a pretty beautiful destination!

IHG, ALL, Marriott, Club Carlson, Hilton, and Hyatt all have point-bookable properties in Mauritius. This means that point opportunities are also wide open!

Probably one of the more luxurious point options would be the St. Regis.

Bottom Line

Greece itself is a beautiful vacation destination with no end of islands and beaches. But, how cool would it be to turn a vacation into a two-beach destination – starting in Greece and then continuing on to Mauritius? At this price for business class, it could even make sense to just fly to Greece and then onward, while spending a couple of days in Greece as an awesome layover choice.
