Our Honeymoon in Maldives 爱在阳光灿烂的天堂 。马尔代夫 - Part 3, Sea Plane - Miles of atolls, reefs and lagoons 第三章,水上飞机 —— 一望无际的环礁,珊瑚礁和泻湖

Maldives Hulhule Island airport 05

There are 2 sea-plane terminals in Maldives - Maldivian Air Taxi (MAT) and Trans Maldivian Airways (TMA). Basically there is no conflict of route coverage on contract basis with the resorts.
马尔代夫有2个水上飞机码头 - Maldivian Air Taxi (MAT)和 Trans Maldivian Airways (TMA)。两家公司基本上没有覆盖的路线,因为已和各度假村签下合同。

You may check for the list of resorts that both these sea-plane operators fly to...
两家水上飞机飞往度假酒店的名单列表。。。
(1) Maldivian Air Taxi
(2) Trans Maldivian Airways


Our transfer to Chaaya Lagoon Hakuraa Huraa at Meemu Atoll was with Maldivian Air Taxi's De Havilland Twin Otter aircraft. Our resort is located among the southern atolls.. 45 minutes to reach.
我们乘搭Maldivian Air Taxi的 De Havilland Twin Otter aircraft 飞往坐落在Meemu环礁的Chaaya Lagoon Hakuraa Huraa Chaaya。我们的度假村位于南部的环礁之间.. 45分钟即可到达。

Weighing our baggage.
行李秤重。

Maldives Hulhule Island airport 06


Checked-in baggage allowance for our regular transfer flights is 20kgs for each passenger.
However, there are instances when baggage may have to be sent by a later flight due to payload restrictions of the aircraft concerned... and that was our case. We had one baggage with us in the same flight, and another delivered straight to our room at the resort after 3 hours.
航班托运的行李限额是每名旅客20公斤。不过,行李可能要由过后的航班托运到度假村,因为有时候有关飞机有效载荷限制发送。。。我们就此遇到这小小的麻烦,我们有一件行李,被逼寄送于另一班机,3小时后才直接送到我们度假村的房间。

After checked in we were ushered to one of the air-conditioned coaches. The coach took us around the international runway to MAT terminal. That's about 10 minutes journey.
在我们办了登机手续后,地勤人员就带领我们坐上空调旅游车。从机场到MAT终端约10分钟路程。

Happily waiting.
兴奋等待中。

Maldives Hulhule Island airport 08


That's Malé the concrete jungle. Our friend said the new president promised to build another 3 ten-storey flat in Malé. I cannot imagine living in this heavily urbanized, over populated island. The built-up area taking up essentially its entire landmass!
这是马累,确实是个建筑叢林。我们的朋友说,新总统承诺将建造另外3座10层高的单位在马累给人民。我无法想象生活在这个人口超多的岛屿将会是怎样。马累得建成区面积基本上已覆盖了它所有的陆地!

Then reached MAT terminal!
终于到达MAT终端了!

Hulhule Sea plane terminal 03


Arrived at the terminal. Flight is scheduled only upon check-in and base on availability as there is very limited seats per flight. So not necessary you will be the first to board a plane even if you check-in early. Our flight covered two resorts at Meemu Atoll -- Chaaya Lagoon Hakuraa Huraa and Medhufushi Island Resort.
终于抵达终端。由于每个航班座位有限,飞行时间将会在办理登记手续后才会定下。因此,就算你是第一个到达,也未必是最先登上飞机的乘客。我们的航班总共飞往Meemu环礁的两个度假村 —— Chaaya Lagoon Hakuraa Huraa 和 Medhufushi Island Resort。

There is a way to differentiate your cabin crew. If he is wearing short pants, he is. Those wearing long trousers are only ground crew.
如何辨别你的飞行人员?短裤的就是。穿长裤的都是地勤人员。

Maldives Sea Plan ride 11


There are 3 sea plane crew who will be at service in each flight -- the pilot, the assistant pilot, and a cabin crew. No air-cond in the aircraft and it's very hot when you get into it. Everyone was sweating.... Ventilation of air is through the small holes at the top side of every seat, you will feel cool air blowing in after taking off.
每班机共有3个飞行人员服务 —— 机师,助理飞行员和机舱服务员。机内没有冷气,真的很热,每个人都大汗淋漓。。。空气会通过每个座位上侧的小孔吹入,在起飞后你才会感受到凉爽的空气吹进机舱。
