Low cost carrier between Male and Western Europe

Are there any low cost carriers flying none stop from Male to anywhere in Germany, Italy, Austria or Switzerland? Air Berlin used to, but not anymore.

You could try FlyDubai from Male to Dubai and then find some deal from there as so many flights with so many airlines. You could look for deals on Turkish Airlines via istanbul as they are often well priced.

Meridiana is 'shown' as having flights to Milan, I have never heard of them but that shows on a search.

Oman Air via Muscat although a full sevice airline could have deals.

If it is still a beach opion cheap on your way to Europe had you thought about somewhere in Thailand ?

You can book to Europe for example from Brisbane on Etihad, Malaysia Airlines, Singapore Airlines, Thai and then just add on a short flight from Bangkok, Singapore or Kuala Lumpur to a beach or island in Thailand, that would make it simple, easy to arrange and almost certainly the cheapest priced option.

Phuket as example from Singapore is about 1 hr 40 mins, from Kuala Lumpur 1 hr 20 mins, from Bangkok about 1 hr 10 mins. There are other beaches and islands that vary from busy to very quiet.

I believe Edelweiss fly from Zurich, and Condor fly from Frankfurt. For Italy I believe Neos and Meridiana fly to Male from both Milan and Rome. However, some of these services are seasonal so not available all the year round.

There is also Monarch from London Gatwick

Most of the cheap flight from Male to Europe are charter flights.

Thank you all. Checking with Condor and Edelweiss right now. Edelweiss has good reviews and Zurich would be an ideal arrival place for us.
