Malaysia Airlines Launch Flights to Maldives

Malaysia Airlines Berhad (MAB) has launched flights to the Maldives, alongside routes to Chiang Mai and Da Nang as part of its business expansion plan to tap into the leisure market.

Set to commence on August 1, the airline will offer daily flights between Kuala Lumpur and Velana International Airport in the Maldives. 

MAB is part of the Malaysia Aviation Group (MAG).

Speaking at a press conference held yesterday, MAG chief commercial officer of the airline business Dersenish Aresandiran encouraged people to buy tickets at the ongoing travel and tourism fair, MATTA 2024.

“We fairly believe that we are largely competitive in the market. So, if you go down today and buy these fares in MATTA (Fair), I can assure you it will be one of the best deals out there, for a premium carrier, that will give you all those affordable experiences that you get as well,” he said.

With bookings currently available to prospective passengers, one-way tickets are priced at USD 200, while return tickets are offered at USD 299.

Daily flights to Da Nang, Vietnam will commence from Sept 24, while Chiang Mai, Thailand will be served five times a week from Aug 15.
