Flights & getting there
Heading to the airport by bus, allow two hours to be on the safe side, and make sure the conductor knows where you're going; the service runs to Mahébourg, and drivers occasionally skip the detour down to the airport.
Port Louis' two bus stations are both located in the city centre. Buses for northern and eastern destinations, such as Trou aux Biches, Grand Baie and Pamplemousses, leave from Immigration Square bus station, northeast of the Central Market. Buses for southern and western destinations, such as Mahébourg, Curepipe and Flic en Flac, use the Victoria Square bus station just southwest of the city centre.
The first departure on most routes is at about 6am; the last leaves at around 6pm.
