Port Louis Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam Airport

Port Louis Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam Airport is the main international airport in Mauritius. In 2017 the airport handled about 3.8 million passengers. The airport was previously known as the Plaisance Airport and is home to the country’s national airline Air Mauritius.
Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam was a Mauritian politician, statesman and philanthropist. He was a leader in the Mauritian independence movement, and served as the first Chief Minister and Prime Minister of Mauritius, as well as its Governor-General.
In 1942, the government decided to build a small airport at Plaine Magnien. The airport was used to import products from the United Kingdom and its colonies, as well as for exports. The airport was used as a military base for the Royal Air Force during World War II. The operations of the civil airport started just after the Second World War which gave a boost to the Mauritian economy.
