Descending into the beautiful Maldives

Hello again fellow airmen! This time I flew to the beautiful Maldives, again with my good friend and fellow AFKLM pilot @Gabriel_Gava . We flew an Etihad codeshare route from Abu Dhabi to Malé Velana airport for our so much beloved virtual airline, @AF-KLM_VA . Flying for AFKLM is always a real pleasure and never a bore. And by sharing these pictures I’ve taken, I am more than glad to share my excitement and enthusiasm with you. Welcome to the Maldives 🇲🇻 .
