India’s low-cost carrier IndiGo is set to resume scheduled flights to the Maldives, directly connecting the Indian city of Kochi to Male in September.
Starting from September 3, the airline will operate a direct flight service between Kochi and Male-Kochi every Thursday and Sunday. Schedules are subject to change without prior notice. IndiGo was operating direct flights between Male and the Indian cities of Kochi, Bangalore, and Mumbai, before the coronavirus pandemic.
Last week AirIndia has also announced that it has also resumed flights to the Maldives, operating a weekly service between Trivandrum and Male. Moreover, Maldives and India have announced a “Travel Bubble” to facilitate the movement of people between the two countries.
In 2019, India was the fastest-growing source market for Maldives tourism, with a yearly growth of 83.5% to reach 166,015 from 90,474 in 2018.
IndiGo primarily operated in India’s domestic air travel market as a low-cost carrier with a focus on our three pillars offering low fares, being on-time, and delivering a courteous and hassle-free experience. The airline has grown from a carrier with one plane to a fleet of 276 aircraft, servicing a total destination count of 87 with 63 domestic destinations and 24 International.
