Mega Maldives Airlines Eyes Partnership With Indian Carriers

Mega Maldives Airlines, which will start direct flights from the national capital to Male this month, is in discussions with some Indian carriers for possible partnership.


Seeing India as one of the largest growing markets, the private airline also has plans to ramp up its presence here with direct flights from Mumbai and services from the national capital to Dhaka, Bangladesh.


"There is more than one good candidate for us to partner with. We are going to look at that further in the coming months," Mega Maldives Airlines' Founder and CEO George Weinmann told PTI.


Noting that it would be too early to divulge further details, he said various frameworks, including codeshare, would be looked at.


"It is little bit early to say what framework it will be. The easiest framework will be, what we call, SPA (Special Prorate Agreement). Basically, it means we agree to give a bundled price to other airlines. They will offer a fare and we will offer a fare so that the customer sees one price and we share the price between the two airline," he said.
