This is one of the few reviews from Velana International Airport (Male, Maldives). Pardon the redundancy however I just wanted to write this trip report.

Left the island paradise and took a 30 minute seaplane flight to Male Airport.

Boarding was on time; flight was about 80% full so boarding process was smooth.

Here I was admiring a QR plane.

    Hi Manuel! How you doing??

    took a 30 minute seaplane flight to Male Airport.

    That black and white photograph of the pilots in short pants and barefoot pushing the throttle is an EXCELLENT shot! At first I thought you took it from the National Geographic magazine or something like that!

    Yes, I always fly Economy

    Give me five! We're "brothers in Y". XD

    "Inspirational frappés"

    I wonder how a frappé can be inspirational. :O

    How the gate looked like.

    Velana looks like a nice airport. Plants are a nice touch.

    Some outside views. There were not many flights during that time.

    Rather quiet for the main airport of such a popular destination!! :O

    "Bank of Maldives"

    I heard about that bank and former president Yameen in the news recently!!

    Some more views outside.

    I'm not really a fan of ribbon-abusing liveries, but Bangkok Airways' looks really interesting! The ugliest? Malaysia Airlines. Have you seen it? I don't know if those are ribbons or horns! XD

    delicious spicy ground chicken with rice.

    Looks fantastic! Is that metal cutlery? Wow!


    BKK looks creepy at night!!

    Thanks a lor for sharing, Manuel! What about a report on one of those seaplane flights??
