MEGA Maldives To Extend Its Flights To India
MEGA Maldives Airlines has been awarded an Air Operators Permit from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation of India, which will see it launch direct flights between the Maldives and India.
MEGA Maldives Airlines is only the second airline based in the Maldives that has been awarded the permit to operate flights, and follows on from the airline’s success in operating flights between China and the Maldives.
Being in such close proximity to the Maldives, the growing Indian market is deemed to be extremely important to the country’s tourism sector.
2015 saw the arrivals of tourists from India to the Maldives at just over 50,000, but in 2016 the market has already increased 25%.
The fact that there has not been direct connectivity between the capitals of the two countries in the past, MEGA Maldives Airlines believes that non-stop flights from Delhi to Male’ would further contribute to an increase in tourist arrivals.
It is currently in the process of planning the schedule of flights between Delhi and Male’ and looks forward to announce further details, including the launch date and the fare prices in the very near future.
Since starting up in 2010, MEGA Maldives has seen itself rise up to become the fourth biggest international airlines in the Maldives, and has been working for the welfare of the local community as well.
