British Airways Resumes Direct Flights via Male-Heathrow Route

PUBLISHED October 04, 2021 | updated October 04, 2021 04:35

British Airways has recommenced direct flights between Malé, Velana International Airport (VIA) and Heathrow Airport, London.  

The airlines resumes the operation not long after the tropical destination was removed from the UK Red List. Announced on September 22, Maldives was taken off the list along with 7 other countries as they were deemed to be less risky to travel to. With eased travel for UK citizens, they will no longer be required to take COVID test or quarantine as they return back home. 

With the reopened route from London, the traffic of British travelers to the islands of the Maldives is expected to increase starting from mid October onwards.  

The UK has remained a top market to Maldives since the country’s borders reopened and has not descended from top 10 markets to Maldives during this year, 2021.  

Customers can book their flight tickets to London with the GSA for British Airways in the Maldives, Voyages Maldives. For bookings and further information, email:
