Villa Air Flyme To Commence International Flights To Bangalore, India on 26th September
Flyme, operated by Villa Air is set to begin international flights to Bangalore, India starting 26th September 2021.
Villa Air appointed Nijhawan Group, an Indian travel agency with 40 years of experience as the airline's general sales agent (GSA).
”We are pleased to form this partnership with Flyme. India accelerated its growth to become the number one source market for the Maldives. This also created a gateway for better flight connectivity from India. We aim to invest our resources in customer experience, during pre-bookings, in-flight, and on the ground as we look forward to promoting this across the Indian market.” said Priyanka Nijhawan, Director- Representations, Nijhawan Group.
It was one year ago in September 2020 that Villa Air obtained permit for international flights and operated the very first international flight to Sri Lanka.
The airline then expressed plans to launch international scheduled flight services to India and Sri Lanka along with acquiring Airbus A319 jet aircraft for the operation.
“The Maldives has risen in popularity with Indian travelers, and with a GSA in the country, Flyme is gearing up to provide visitors with an opportunity to fly directly to the islands of the Maldives. With this partnership, we aim to position Flyme as a leading air transport provider for the Maldives and support the economy of the country through developing a better aviation route.” Said Abdulla Nashid, Managing Director, Villa Air Flyme
At present, Villa Air operates primarily domestic routes with the ATR 42/72 turboprop aircraft.
Villa Air’s expansion to international operations would be a major achievement and would contribute heavily to the growth of the aviation industry in the Maldives.
