During the 1970s and 1980s, the airline operated Boeing 747s, in their SP configuration (SP meaning Special Performance), on their longer routes. Nowadays, all the 747s are gone, but they use the Airbus A340 type, with Boeing 767s introduced in 1988, ATR 42s introduced in 1997 and an ATR 72 introduced in 2002 for inter-island routes and Airbus A319. Air Mauritius is also one of the few airlines in the world (Aeroflot, British Airways and Pan Am being among the others) that have combined airplane service with helicopter flights, using the Bell range helicopters.

Air Mauritius has a large presence on European, African and Indian Ocean country airports, and the company performs a range of services in Mauritius for international airlines.

In 1995 the airline was listed on the stock exchange of Mauritius. It is owned by Air Mauritius Holding (51%), publicly held (20.54%), the State Investment Corporation (4.72%), government of Mauritius (4.53%), Rogers and Company (4.28%), British Airways (3.84%), Air France (2.78%) and Air India (2.56%). It employs 2413 staff.
