National airline, Maldivian has commenced operation of direct flights between Maafaru and Delhi starting today, (November 4, 2021). The airline has scheduled 3 weekly flights to Maafaru Airport via its A320 and A321 aircrafts on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
With this new route set most-closest to the resorts located in the Northern region of Maldives, the direct flight will save on time and cost for passengers who had initially taken the option of travelling to their final destination via a domestic airline or a seaplane plane transfer.
Located in Noonu Atoll, Maafaru International Airport opened in 2019 and is managed by Island aviation Services Limited (IAS). As the atoll is home to several high-in-demand resorts and guesthouses, the new connection is expected to promote a surge in tourist arrivals from the targeted market.
Bird Travels, the airline management sub-company of Bird Group is the General Sales Agent (GSA) appointed for Maldivian.
Speaking on the new route back in September, Vijay Bhatia, President, Bird Group said “We are delighted to launch this new service connecting New Delhi with Maafaru. This direct flight will offer the fastest connection for Indian travelers looking to holiday in North Maldives luxury resorts".
