Manta Air hosts roadshow in Bangalore


InterGlobe Air Transport, in partnership with Manta Air, Kandima Resort, RIU Hotel, and Niyama Islands, organised a roadshow in Bangalore on March 18th to showcase the offerings and advantages of flying with Manta Air to Dhaalu Airport in the Maldives. Attended by 60 agents from the travel fraternity, the event aimed to familiarise them with the product offerings and benefits of choosing Manta Air.

The roadshow featured Deputy CEO, Manta Air, Ahmed Maumoon, GM-Sales for InterGlobe Air Transport, Nayan Srivastava, and representatives from the partnering resorts.

Receiving positive feedback from the attending agents, Manta Air is optimistic about capitalising on the upcoming summer holiday season. Apart from leisure and honeymoon travel, the airline will also target incentive groups.

Manta Air currently operates three weekly flights between Dhaalu Airport and Bangalore, scheduled every Tuesday, Friday, and Sunday. The airline utilises ATR72-600 aircraft, specially redesigned to enhance passenger comfort. With 16 luxurious sapphire class (premium economy) seats and 48 spacious comfort class (economy) seats, passengers enjoy a seating pitch of 36 inches and 32 inches, respectively.

The direct flight to Dhaalu Airport eliminates the need for additional domestic or seaplane flights typically required to reach resorts in the Dhaalu region. This not only saves passengers time and hassle but also reduces costs significantly. Moreover, it bypasses the long queues at the busy international hub at Male airport, saving travelers 4-5 hours of journey time, allowing them more time to enjoy their holiday at the resort.

Passengers traveling on this flight benefit from convenient and exclusive check-in, immigration, and customs processes, as it is the only international flight operating to Dhaalu Airport. Baggage allowances include 20kg in economy and 25kg in premium economy, along with 7kg of hand luggage.

In-flight, passengers are served sandwiches and refreshments at no additional cost, enhancing their overall travel experience with Manta Air.
