From 18th October 2021, the airline will operate daily flight between Maldives and London Heathrow, which will facilitate UK travellers to visit the most popular holidays destinations in this part of the world.
Moran Birger, British Airways’ Head of Sales for South Asia, Middle East and Africa said, “We can’t wait to welcome our customers back on board our flights from Maldives to London after such a long time. Both locations are so popular for tourists, we know customers will be excited to book a much needed holiday.”
“The safety of our customers and colleagues has always been at the heart of everything we do. We know some customers won’t have flown for a long time, we can assure them we have a range of Covid-19 measures in place to provide stress and hassle-free travel.”
In order to ensure safety for its passengers, the airline has implemented number of measures at the airport and on board, including ocial distancing measures, the wearing of face masks (which remain in place) and hand sanitiser stations. Prior to travel customers will also receive details of how they can prepare for their journey, including information on discounted testing providers.
In addition via VerFLY, a digital health app, customers can combine their travel verification documents and Covid-19 test results in one place and confirming their eligibility with a few simple steps. The app helps customers to navigate the changing entry requirement and facilitating a seamless journey.
Futhermore, the airline has also partnered with Dettol to offer a range of products to keep its customers and colleagues safe in the air and on the ground. The airline is cleaning all key surfaces including seats, screens, seat buckles and tray tables after every flight and each aircraft is completely cleaned from nose to tail every day.
The air on all British Airways flights is fully recycled once every two to three minutes through HEPA filters, which remove microscopic bacteria and virus clusters with over 99.9% efficiency, equivalent to hospital operating theatre standards.
UK is one of the leading markets in terms of arrivals to the Maldives and takes a spot in the top 10 markets for tourist arrivals so far in 2021.
