We enjoyed our flight from Male to Kooddoo Airport by Maladivian Airlines. This is one of the best service provider in the region with on time departure and good connections. The staff on ground and on air were equally good. Our overall experience was good.

Maldivian Airlines cancelled my flight to Male and put me on their next scheduled flight to Male meaning I missed my connecting flights with Qatar Airlines to Doha-Johannesburg-Durban and had to repurchase the entire leg! This despite informing Maldivian the times of my connecting international flight. I have since tried to recover costs of repurchasing return leg unsuccessfully although no...

Obnoxious discrimination of race and color!! I am an asian live in the U.S. Me and my mom arrived the airport checking in before everyone else. However, all the front row seats were given to white passengers. Very unbelievable last minute before boarding the plane the receptionist came up to us to change our pass to back rows given reasons...

Our flights with Maldivian were pretty good. The staff were impeccably presented, very professional. We received towelettes which was refreshing given the heat, juice was also given which was nice. Our flights ran on time, overall it was exactly what I would expect.

This airline is neither good or bad, it is very awarege for being a regional airline. On Maldives, you do not have a option to choose as Maldivian is the only one. We flew Male-Kooddoo-Male. First flight the Dash8-300 tvin propeller plane felt quite old and heavily used. On the return flight it was a newer Dash8. Please observe that...

This was my first time in the Maldives hence the first time taking a domestic flight to Kooddoo. The plane is small but the crew professional and efficient, it is a brief flight so the time goes by extremely fast. The flight was arranged by the resort Mercure Kooddoo so not sure if there are any additional options for other...
