I have booked to go to Reethi the first two weeks of April next year. When I booked it said I would transfer to the resort via the new Dharavandhoo Airport. Having been to Reethi before in 2011 we had travelled that time by sea plane. When I asked the travel agent what this meant they said they hadn't heard this before and so checked and then came back to me and said yes it's it's a new airport but still a sea plane.
I have Reethi on my Facebook and it was posted yesterday that the new Dharavandhoo Airpot was opened on 30th November and they welcome it's first guest who were then transferred to Reethi by a 15min speedboat transfer. They also explained that the land based aircraft connecting Male International to Dharavandhoo Airport offers the benefit of flying at night and that tour operators are offering this as a ALTERNATIVE to the seaplane.
Sorry to be so long winded but does anyone have any information what type of planes they are if they are not sea planes. We love the sea plane transfer, all adds to the pleasure of the holiday so am confused as to what to expect.
