British Airways Will Cover Maldives Soon

A few days ago, there were some reports in the media that British Airlines (BA) was facing some financial losses. Well, at the time of global economic crisis, it is natural. Now, the company has announced that from October it will operate 3 flights a week to Maldives. It is the first time that BA is going to cover Maldives.

Times Online reported:

The airline says it will fly to both Male in the Maldives and Sharm El Sheikh in Egypt from 25 October on a thrice-weekly basis. It will be the first time that BA has operated services to the Maldives. BA previously served Sharm el Sheikh through its franchise operator GB Airways, which was acquired by easyJet in 2007.

The services will use Boeing 777 aircraft configured with three classes: World Traveller, World Traveller Plus and Club World.

It looks a good business decision to me because Maldives is a popular destination among rich people in England. In the past one year, some high profile celebrity couples came here for honeymoon. So, some people from UK will be able to escape the cold weather home and come to the sunny islands.
