Mega Maldives leases B737-800 from Travel Service Airlines
Mega Maldives Air (LV, Malé) has wet-leased a B737-800 from Travel Service Airlines (QS, Prague) as part of its plans to modernise its fleet and expand its route network, the airline said in a statement.
The aircraft, OK-TVT (msn 39394), will be wet-leased during the winter months and used to bolster the carrier’s short-haul connectivity to India and Sri Lanka, as well as free up its three B767-300(ER)s to resume services to Kuala Lumpur Int'l and Jeddah during the fourth quarter. The arrangement marks the third time Mega Maldives has wet-leased aircraft from the Czech charter specialist.
Plans to expand in the region come following a sharp decline in Chinese tourist traffic to the Maldives, which have affected the airline. Mega Maldives focuses exclusively on the China market serving Beijing Capital, Chengdu, Hong Kong Chek Lap Kok, and Shanghai Pudong.
