Vancouver to the Maldives - $668 CAD roundtrip including taxes

The Maldives

Hong Kong Airlines is showing flights from Vancouver to The Maldives for $668 CAD roundtrip including taxes.

The flights have 1 stop each way, in Hong Kong.

Aside from the really low price, the other interesting thing about these flights is that they are the fastest flights from Vancouver to the Maldives.

You can also turn these into a 2-in-1 trip and visit both Hong Kong *and* the Maldives, for $43 more (see below).

On November 29th, Hong Kong airlines unexpectedly announced that they will be discontinuing service from Vancouver to Hong Kong next year. A YVR Deals member sent me some great info on the options that are available to those who booked this deal (thanks Parveen!). That info can be found below.

Hong Kong Airlines cancels service from Vancouver

Parveen writes...

I jumped on the Maldives deal. Since that time, Hong Kong airlines has cancelled flights leaving YVR after February 20.

Everyone who booked needs to contact the airline (if they booked directly) or their travel agency / website they booked through.

These are the options to deal with this:

1. Full refund of unused sectors to passengers who will travel on or after the service ends and wish to cancel their trips

2. Free change of travel date for flights

- between Hong Kong and Vancouver before 12 February 2020

- between Hong Kong and Ho Chi Minh City before 20 February 2020

- between Hong Kong and Tianjin before 10 February 2020

3. Free change to any destination operated by Hong Kong Airlines (applicable fare and taxes difference may apply)

4. Free transfer to other partner carriers to be arranged by Hong Kong Airlines (subject to seat availability)

As I already booked my hotel, I did not want to cancel the flight, so Flighthub put in a request for me to be transferred to a partner airline. I will see how it goes over the next few days and hopefully it is approved.

The options seem to be to transfer to Eva Air and China Eastern.

additional note from Chris:

If these are the 2 airlines presented to you as options, definitely choose Eva Air if possible, being the better airline.

Availability for travel

April is the tail end of what most consider to be the best months to visit the Maldives (November to April).

    They rebooked me so give your travel agency a call. If you didn’t book directly through them they will want you to go through wherever you booked. My new flights were confirmed this morning
