Thanks to covid-19, Maldives became the hottest new travel

Thanks to covid-19, Maldives became the hottest new travel destination in 2020. Due to a travel ban to many popular tourist spots, wealthy Indians flocked to the island nation. Now, airlines are increasing their flight services to the island nation to cater to this demand.

More flights from Bengaluru to Male are expected to start from February. While Indigo will be increasing its frequency from three flights a week to daily flight, Air India would be restarting direct flights to Male from February 5. The national carrier had suspended the service following the outbreak of covid-19.

In order to cater to the growing popularity for the island nation, GoAir had commenced flight operations three days a week between Bengaluru and Male from November 1.

The Indian High Commission in Maldives earlier this month said that India was the top source market for Maldives tourism in 2020 with 62,905 tourist arrivals from India from six Indian cities and with five airlines operating. India’s market share during 2020 was 11.3 per cent.
