Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport is located near Plaisance, south-east of Port Louis, Mauritius’ capital. It is named after the island-country’s first prime minister.
Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International comprises one terminal building with two levels, with Arrivals on the ground floor and Departures on the upper floor. Current development plans include the construction of a second terminal building, which will connect to the existing terminal. MRU is restricted to passengers only, meaning non-passengers are not permitted to enter the building. As such, there are no landside shops or restaurants.
Save for delays and queues during peak holiday seasons, Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International is generally efficient and a pleasure to use. The interior of the terminal building has a warm atmosphere and staff are polite and helpful. Although fairly small and lacking in terms of shops and facilities, the airport possesses a distinct charm synonymous with island-style airports, thus making for a pleasant start (or end) to your island getaway.
Both arrivals and departures are in one building; all gates are in close proximity to each other and are accessible by foot.
