A recent press release issued by MEGA Maldives Airlines states that starting today, it has temporarily suspended service between Male’ and Delhi due to “non-availability of aircraft and low demand”.
The service that commenced on November 14 last year, takes off from Male’ at 1515 and arrives in Delhi at 1925 on Monday, Thursday and Saturday (flight LV 304).
The two return services on flight LV 305 take off from Delhi at 0850 (Tuesday and Friday) and 1000 (Sunday) and reach Male’ at 1235 and 1350 respectively.
A B737-800 aircraft flies the route.
The airline has offered a full refund to its passengers with valid tickets on which the outbound journey has not been made. Passengers scheduled to board their return flights will be given partial refund (for the single leg that hasn’t been flown yet) or a ticket for an alternative airline.
The press release goes on to say: “MEGA has been greatly encouraged by the feedback received for this sector and acknowledges that India, as one of the fastest growing markets for the Maldives, presents great potential. We therefore hope to return to this market as soon as possible.”
