two flights on a sunday night

A300 via Bahrain leaves at 2200
A330 direct leaves at 2100

depends which tour operator you book as to which flight you are on, the A330 is all for Kuoni.

Not sure what you're going to see in Male in July, but you sure will enjoy that approach. Feels certain that you're going to end up in the sea. An amazing airport!

I flew down on the A300 last October. We were delayed 24 hours as Bush & Blair started a fight in Afghanistan.

Anyway. Last year the 300 left at 21:30 and the 330 at 23:00 but things have changed this year. When we arrived the A330 was already there and an Air Europe 777 was also on the apron.

BUT

If your not already get yourself a transfer with Maldives Air Taxi who operate Twin Otter amphibians. What an experience, friendly guys to.

BTW

Your bags will be X-Rayed on arrival to check for Booze, Porn, Pork and Religous idols. (jewelry OK ie cross on a chain etc.) Don't forget to respect that they are a muslin country.


Enjoy!

Don't know about the timings, but I'd be interested to see a trip report about the MON A330. I'm on one in December flying to Kerala.

A colleague went to the Maaldives surfing and apparently it was fantastic - v expensive though - take lots of dollars, especially if you have to buy evening meals.
