Maldives Getting There
Maldives Getting There

The Maldives is a pretty far flung destination. After years of working in travel, we know that if you want to reach paradise, you better be prepared for the journey. And the Maldives is certainly worth it!

By plane
There are direct flights from Colombo, Dubai, Trivandrum, Singapore, Karachi, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Munich, Bucharest, Zurich, Rome, Bombay, London, Doha, Narita, Vienna, Moscow, Madrid, Sharjah, Kuala Lumpur, Gatwick, Manchester, Bahrain and Paris. As such the Maldives is easily reached from Australia and New Zealand, and there are now a large number of charter flights direct from Europe.

Almost all visitors get to the Maldives via plane typically. Once you have landed at Malé international airport, it really depends where you want to go. There is a 24-hour ferry service from the airport island to the capital, which takes about 15 minutes.

Getting around

By plane
The planes are red and white (Maldivian Air Taxi) or yellow and blue (Trans Maldivian Airways) and take around 10 passengers. Transfers are usually via seaplane or speedboat. Given the stunning scenery it’s always advisable to arrive by seaplane where possible the views of the islands from the air are nothing short of spectacular.

By boat
The taxi boats generally take tourists to and from the islands in the North and South Male atolls. They come in all different shapes and sizes depending on the quality of the resort you stay in. Most of the exclusive resorts operate private flights with Maldivian Air Taxi and Trans Maldivian Airways from the international airport. And seeing as the Maldives is a reasonably small country, it will not take more than 45 minutes to get anywhere from Malé.

By Road
Bicycles and motorbikes are the most common means of road transport. You will be amused to find that motor cars are the status symbol of the elite class. Limited taxi services are also available.
