What to think about?
Are there any direct flights to Mauritius from your nearest city? There are direct flights from London, Paris, Singapore, Mumbai and Perth but not from Manchester, Athens, Edinburgh, Beijing and Honk Kong.
Would you prefer to get the flight out of the way in one go, or split the journey in two to give the kids a partial break from a long-haul flight.
How important is cost for you? There is a significant price difference between Emirates and Air Seychelles for example.

Our Preferred Airline
Emirates wins it hands down for us. They have two flights per day, they have the most comprehensive entertainment on-board, and wherever you are traveling from, it is likely that your journey is likely to be split in two, with a 2-4 hour break in Dubai to clean the toddlers up!
