Maldives is one of those dream holiday and honeymoon destinations for many. It is somewhat difficult to get into, however, using miles & points. It will become bit easier later this year when Turkish Airlines, Istanbul based Star Alliance carrier, starts Istanbul – Male service five times a week beginning on November according to a post by AirlineRoute.net.
Currently Male is served by two Star Alliance carriers Singapore Airlines and Austrian. Swiss’s Edelweiss subsidiary also flies there from Zurich.
I have been to Maldives twice and have flown Singapore Airlines there both times. If you haven’t been to Male, the capital of the Maldives, the city is worth exploring for a day as I recently did. You can read about my experience at the Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa. It is a fantastic property
