IndiGo is set to commence daily non-stop direct flights from Bangalore, India to Male’, Maldive starting from 1st February 2021 onwards.
At present, IndiGo is operating 3 weekly flights between the two countries. With this increase in frequency, the airline will be operating flights from Maldives to 4 cities as follows.
- Male’ to Mumbai – Daily flights
- Male’ to Bangalore – Daily flights
- Male’ to Delhi – 4 times a week
- Male’ to Cochin – 4 times a week
Additionally, IndiGo has introduced special medical fares exclusively to the Aasandha team in combination with Maldivian Holidays. This will also be introduced to its Bangalore routes as well.
In 2020, India was ranked the top source market for tourism in Maldives. Currently, India ranks second for the year 2021. Maldives has been reopened for tourists of all nationalities since 15th July 2020. The stringent health and safety measures in place, and the naturally distanced nature of the Maldivian islands ensure safety for all tourists. Maldives also plans to roll out the COVID-19 vaccine in the coming months – this will hopefully increase the confidence travelers have in Maldives, and further increase tourist arrival rates from India.
