Mega Maldives Airlines to expand its fleet and destinations

MEGA Global Air Services (Maldives) Pvt. Ltd. (dba Mega Maldives Airlines) (Male) and it’s offshore partner, MG Holdings Limited, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with BB Airways Pvt. Ltd. of Nepal, whereby the companies agreed to collaborate on developing flights and sharing of resources for cost effective operation of both airlines. The two airlines plan to develop operations both within the SAARC region and beyond.

The cooperation between BB Airways and Mega Maldives Airlines will help both parties expand and open new markets.

According to CAPA, Mega Maldives plans to add four additional Boeing 757-200s and one additional Boeing 767-300 and add its first routes to the Middle East and Southeast Asia. The second phase of expansion will see the possible launch of services to Australia and Europe using a second type of widebody aircraft.

Mega Maldives currently operates regular flights throughout the year from Male to Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong. These operations include 6 to 18 round trips per month from these cities depending on the time of the year (see map below).

Mega Maldives also operates seasonal routes from Male to Gan, Chengdu, Chongqing, Hangzhou and Seoul (Incheon). Due to the seasonality of demands on these routes, Mega Maldives does not normally operate flights to these destinations in mid-December to early January and between March and May.

According to the privately owned airline, “Mega Maldives Airlines is the privately owned international airline of the Maldives and serves the Chinese market with the greatest number of frequencies of any nonstop carrier. The airline operates Boeing 767 and 757 aircraft in a multi-class configuration. Mega, founded in 2010, carries up to 30% of the Chinese market to Maldives and up to 14% of all traffic to the Maldives. The airline plans to take delivery of several additional aircraft and expand to several new points over the coming year.”
