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...

We flew to Chennai on 26th March by Maldivian Airline and had a relaxing journey. Nothing special, a basic service with very "simple" food. Just a croissant sandwich and a cup of juice. Cabin crews were pleasant and helpful. We returned to Male' today. Good clean flight with nice crew set. Meal was good, chicken curry with rice and salad,...

This was our first time being on a seaplane. Prepare for the plane to be hot and stuffy until you take-off. We had to drop passengers off at another resort before continuing on to Vakkaru. All in all, much faster than being on boat for 90+ minutes.

As we were the last 2 to check-in at Male, we were given the seats 1e and 1f on a plane that goes with 2x2 (ie 1a, 1b are on the left, 1 c and 1d on the right and so on) So where were 1e and 1f? It took us a while to find out these were the two...

Had to take this flight as seaplanes hadn't been flying. It's all of a 20 min hop to Male so you can't really say much about such a service other than its like a bus trip. Basic lounge amenities provided that's about it. Got us there safely for our connecting flight..

If you haven’t been to the Maldives before, getting to the hotels away from the main island is a bit of a process. After you arrive from your international flight you are taken to an air conditioned lounge (with free food) to wait, sometimes for a few hours for your domestic flight. Service with Maldivian is on a small dash...

The weather was terrible and the flight was delayed. Actually, I was quite unhappy as the airline put me on a different, earlier flight. But, with the terrible weather, I got to Male at my originally scheduled time. In Kadhdhoo I decided to splurge and paid 10 dollars for access to the lounge. With the long wait, it turned out...

The check in was fast and efficient. I didn't have my e-ticket with me, but the check-in lady sorted me out anyway. My bag was 5 kilo overweight but luckily I didn't have to pay extra. The flight was delayed for over an hour. By the time we finally boarded the plane it was getting dark. It didn't matter, because...

I flew on Maldivian from Male to Hanimaadhoo and back. Each leg of the trip was made up of two 20 minute flights. Our flight had been delayed for more than 30 minutes when the pilots exited the plane that we were supposed to board. They went across the tarmac to a plane that had been brought in presumably to...
