Mauritius, Seychelles and the Maldives are some of the worlds most stunning places. Historically they have had their own national airlines and have had most connections to Europe and to a smaller extend to Africa. However flying from Asia has been trickier in the past (with the exception of redeeming Flying Blue miles on Air Mauritius’ flights to China).
Fly AirAsia to the Maldives and Mauritius
Air Asia (Review) has started flying to Male, Maldives last year and added service to Mauritius this year. Since those are still relatively new routes the fares can be shockingly low!
I also redeemed miles on Malaysia Airlines from Male to Kuala Lumpur before which was a decent deal.
Redeem OneWorld miles for the SriLankan flight from Colombo to Mahe, Seychelles
SriLankan used to operate this flight using the low-cost subsidiary MihinLankan but has recently integrated all flights into SriLankan mainline. This change makes those flights bookable with any Oneworld miles.
Unfortunately Avios redemptions come with a high fuel surcharge on SriLankan but it is still better than paying the $500 one-way fare for this 5 hour fight.
