New Flights between Delhi and Male Announced by Maldivian

An added connection between India and Maldives is on the cards as Maldivian, the national airline of Maldives, seeks to link capital cities of both the countries. The carrier will be offering flights services between Delhi and Male from April or May of the next year, said the airline’s chairman, Bandhu Ibrahim Saleem. 

The carrier will be receiving its second Airbus A-320 in March or April 2013 and the operator plans to use the aircraft to run services to Delhi. It has also been reported that initially the airline will operate three flights a week to the city but later on in October, as the third Airbus 320 aircraft is delivered, increase in the frequency of flights to the Indian cities can be expected, offering added alternatives to tickets seekers.  

The carrier is also scheduled to begin three-times-a-week flights to India’s Mumbai and Chennai from Male in the mid of November 2012. With an augmentation in the number of flights connecting India to the Maldivian capital, the airline is hoping to attract more number of people in India to purchase cheap tickets for travelling to the popular beach destination. Even Europeans looking for tickets for travel to the Maldives will have increased tickets options as Delhi remains a highly popular stopover for tourists seeking tickets on connecting flights. 

As of now, Maldivian is operating flights connecting Male and Thiruvananthapuram, a city in South India.
