10 Years of Airport Injustice: Rodrigues Travelers Demand Change

Passengers traveling to Rodrigues from Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport (SSR) in Mauritius expressed outrage over what they see as unfair treatment in the handling of their luggage and boarding procedures.

According to frequent flyer Christopher Meunier, this situation has been ongoing for over a decade.

Meunier, who regularly flies with Air Mauritius, AML, and ARL, describes a chaotic experience for passengers heading to Rodrigues.

He noted that access to the parking and boarding area is restricted to VIPs, tour operator vehicles, and AML maintenance vehicles, leaving Rodrigues-bound travelers to navigate a crowded public parking area.

They must then transport their luggage over 200 meters, exposed to the elements, before reaching the boarding gate.

Some have even had their bags drenched by rain before reaching the gate, which is unacceptable as per Meunier.

Meunier questioned why the specifically designed parking area for Rodrigues passengers is not being utilized as intended, creating an unjust situation for those travelers.

He also pointed out issues at the Rodrigues airport, where a flat fee of Rs 20 is charged to anyone exiting the parking lot, regardless of actual usage.

Meunier suggested that this practice is fostering a sense of unfairness and dissatisfaction among travelers and calling for corrective action from airport authorities to ensure equitable treatment for all passengers.

In conclusion, Meunier urged officials to address the inadequate organization at both Mauritius and Rodrigues airports in order to provide a better travel experience for all passengers, regardless of their destination or origin.
