MALE’, Maldives; July 22, 2011– MEGA Maldives Airlines today successfully completed the first direct scheduled flight from Beijing Capital International Airport to Male’. The Male’ International Airport was in a festive mood in anticipation of the arrival of this historic first flight by a local airline and was celebrated with traditional Maldivian entertainment. A welcoming committee in traditional formal dress welcomed the passengers with flowers as they exited the aircraft. Many passengers stopped to take pictures with the members of the welcoming committee and in front of the aircraft. Later, members of the media were able to go onboard the aircraft for a brief tour. The flight carried 223 passengers to Male’, who were heading off to various resort destinations in the Maldives.
The Beijing route launched today was key target destination from the very beginning of services by MEGA Maldives Airlines and to have successfully achieved that target is a proud moment to the company, its management and all staff.
The non-stop capital-to-capital scheduled route from Beijing to the Maldives will invigorate bilateral trade for both Maldivian and Chinese entrepreneurs alike seeking new business opportunities and will contribute to the already close diplomatic relationship between the two countries.
On Monday, 25th of July, MEGA Maldives Airlines will hold a press conference to recognize the successful launch of the Beijing and Shanghai direct flights. The airline will also introduce its second class of cabin crew, who are now completing their rigorous training and beginning to join operations.
The on-going drive by the company to create new jobs in the country’s aviation industry continues this week with the recruitment of the third class of cabin crews on Wednesday 27th of July. An open interview day will be held at CHSE from 9.30 am to 4.30 pm for the recruitment, with priority given to applicants who apply before the date to the MEGA Maldives Airlines office.
