Maldives airline targets China outbound
Feizal Samath, Colombo, July 27, 2011

MEGA Maldives, the country’s sole international carrier, recently launched non-stop Beijing-Male flights, adding to scheduled Shanghai and Hong Kong services.


The airline, focusing on the lucrative China outbound market, began operations earlier this year, with flights to Hong Kong and then Shanghai.


The carrier operates a total of 18 flights a month, with six flights to each of the three Chinese destinations.


According to Muzaffar Naeem, Mega Maldives’ spokesperson, flights on all three routes are fully booked (over 90 per cent load factor) until September.


He said additional frequencies were being planned for September and October, while a fourth route to Seoul is scheduled to launch in September through the lease of a second aircraft.


Mega Maldives operates a Boeing 767-300ER aircraft with a 12 business-class and 252 economy-class seat configuration.
