China Eastern $598 Los Angeles to Maldives

This is one very low fare to the Maldives via Shanghai. Skyteam Alliance airline China Eastern has a few dates between August and November with round trip fare at $598 to $615 for Los Angeles to Male, Maldives.

China Eastern    Los Angeles LAX – Shanghai PVG – Male, Maldives MLE

$598.00 on Priceline  October 2-9

LAX-MLE $598 China Eastern Oct2-9

Many of the routings at $615 are three stops via Shanghai PVG, Kunming KMG and Colombo, Sri Lanka CMB.

This is the first time I have seen flights to Maldives for under $900 from the USA.

Loyalty Traveler Google Flights tutorials are guides on how I use Google Flights to find low fares.

  1. So you’d be paying about the same amount for the 30-minute or so flight from Male to the resort island as for the flight from the US to Male? Wow.

  2. That sounds about right. Kind of amazing how expensive the short island hops are from Male to resort islands.

    I figured it was kind of an oxymoron idea to write about flights to Maldives in economy class.
