A direct flight from Russia to the Maldives takes about 9 hours. Aeroflot is one of the oldest active airline services in the world. Likewise, the airline was founded and has been operating since 1923. The resumption of flights from Aeroflot will have an increase in tourist arrivals from Russia to the Maldives.

Recently, leading travel agent Resort Life Travel partnered with Anex Tour to operate charter flights between the Maldives and Russia as well. In addition to that, Maldives Marketing and Public Relations Corporation has restarted its E-learning platform for tour operators in Russia and the CIS region. The objective of this platform is to encourage tour operators in Russia and the CIS Region to further increase bookings to the Maldives.

Major airlines operating flights to the Maldives have recommenced their operations since the Maldives border reopening on 15th July 2020. Arrivals to the Maldives are on the rise once again with 7,628 arrivals recorded in August 2020. Presently, a select number of resorts and liveaboards are currently open for tourism in the Maldives.
