A direct flight between India and Madagascar can help the people of Madagascar to avail world-class health, educational and financial services in India and can promote tourism between the two countries

Madagascar remains largely unexplored by Indian tourists. The island nation is just six hours away in the Indian Ocean and next to Mauritius is a biodiversity hotspot and has plants and animals which are not found elsewhere in the world.

Visa is available for Indian tourists on arrival in Madagascar and there are many places to visit across the country from Baobab Alley to dancing lemurs to singing whales and pristine beaches. Madagascar is known for dark night skies and is ideal for astro-tourism. All the major constellations visible from the Southern Hemisphere are visible in Madagascar.

A direct flight between India and Madagascar can help the people of Madagascar to avail world-class health, educational and financial services in India and can promote tourism between the two countries.

Madagascar has a large Indian diaspora with roots in Gujarat.
