Port-Louis, Mauritius (PANA) - The Mauritian aviation company, Air Mauritius, Thursday posted a profit of 5.2 million euros for the period April to December, 2013, as compared to losses amounting to 3.1 million euros for the corresponding period in 2012, PANA reported here, quoting a communique from the company.
