Maldivian Airlines, the national carrier of the Maldives, will launch a new domestic service under the South Connectivity Initiative, connecting Gan International Airport (GAN) in Seenu atoll and Kooddoo Airport (GKK) in Huvadhoo atoll twice weekly, from 29th October 2024.

Maldivian Airlines South Connectivity through domestic service is an initiative led by the Government of Maldives, in collaboration with Maldivian, Addu International Airport, Ministry of Transport & Civil Aviation, Maldives Marketing & Public Relations Corporation and the Ministry of Tourism, to deliver enhanced tourism connectivity and commercial links, supporting the development of the Southern Zone.

This initiative underscores Maldivian’s commitment to enhancing connectivity for both locals and tourists in the Maldives, marking a pivotal advancement in fostering a resilient tourism ecosystem that serves the interests of visitors and the local communities alike. The service between GAN and GKK facilitates a direct connection for arriving tourists to Gan International Airport via Sri Lankan Airlines, giving access to over 2,100 resort and guest house beds in Gaaf Alifu and Gaaf Dhaalu Atoll. The new route will further support import/export trade for local businesses in the Southern Zone.

Ticket bookings for the service will be available from 4th April 2024, from Maldivian’s sales channels including the official website, mobile application, ticketing office and via sales agents, allowing travellers to plan and secure their journeys well in advance.

Guests can also explore amazing fares and exciting destinations through the airline. Maldivian recently also announced better baggae fares on surf bags and promotional fares on two international destinations. Guests can now explore amazing fares to both Bengalore as well as Colombo with the airline.

The first-ever Sea-to-Air Cargo Transshipment Commenced in the Maldives!

Velana Airport has announced the first-ever sea-to-air cargo transshipment along with Turkish Airlines, Maldives Ports Limited and Maldives Customs Service. This major step in cargo transhipment in the Maldives was celebrated on the 17th of May at the airport.

The  MoU for the ‘Sea to Air’ cargo transshipment services were signed earlier this year, on March 30th. With this, Turkish Airlines became the cargo partner to facilitate the service along with the Maldives Ports Limited (MPL).

With the transshipment service, MPL can easily transport goods through both seas as well as air travel. In addition to catering to the needs of businesses and industries in the region, this will also help expedite the carrying of goods from one place to another. According to the Turkish Airlines’ Regional Cargo Manager for Sri Lanka and Maldives Bilal Okur, this will help the airline’s target to develop the Maldives into a sea-to-air transshipment hub.

This innovative logistics solution is expected to significantly boost the efficiency of cargo movement. Additionally, this may also see the enhancement of trade opportunities for the Maldives.
