With the inclusion of the Maldives in the list of countries participating in Singapore’s Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) scheme, fully vaccinated passengers travelling on SQ437 on 16 December 2021 were the first from Male to enjoy quarantine-free entry into Singapore.  

Ms Susan Yong, General Manager Maldives said: “The commencement of VTL flights from Male to Singapore is a reflection of the importance of the Maldives market. We are excited to welcome more passengers on board our flights.”  

Flights between Male and Singapore were suspended in March 2020 when the COVID-19 pandemic hit. By December 2020, Singapore Airlines had resumed its operations and currently operates daily flights between Male and Singapore, with SQ437 operating three times a week as the designated VTL flight.  

To further boost air links, Singapore Airlines will be increasing its flight frequency from 7 to 10 times a week, from 2 January 2022.  

Singapore Airlines offers Business Class and Economy Class services on flights between Male and Singapore. Passengers can purchase their tickets via or our SingaporeAir mobile app as well as through authorised travel agents.
