If you going from Bangalore, then there is an Air India flight which goes directly to Male via Trivandrum. The flight is at 8 Am in morning and it reaches Male by 11 Am. Overall, the flight was very good with a stop over at Trivandrum. Likewise the return flight is at 11 Am and the flight reaches here by 3 Pm. You get Visa on arrival based on which resort you are going. If you don't have any resort booking, than you need carry 500$ per person.

The prices were very competitive and we were traveling with family for holidays. The Aircraft was very well-maintained, it was good experience. Only one thing we did not like was, we were 8 people but could not get the seats in the plane together. The attendant asked us to complete the online boarding to get the seats in series well in advance. While returning we did so. But the result was same.

A small ATR aircraft with relatively uncomfortable 1 hr long journey. Those amongst us who have travelled in an ATR before would agree that the noise and small cabin space make the journey relatively uncomfortable. Also due to aircraft limitations the journey is comparatively longer as compared to other jet engine aircraft. There are other better services of other Airlines available for this sector. Although I am an Air India fan I would suggest it would be better to avoid Air India on this sector. The Airport experience though at Bengaluru Airport was hassle free.
