Later that evening the return flight will depart at 23.20 as flight EK702.

We felt that by arranging this special flight it was a fitting way to support the official celebrations of the island's independence," said Ahmed Khoory, Senior Vice President Commercial, West Asia and Indian Ocean, Emirates." "Emirates believes in connecting people and so on this special day for the Mauritian people, it is pleasing to be able to bring even more visitors to the island."
