The journey of a lifetime!
The Maldives has become a byword for paradise and fortunately we’re easily accessible from anywhere in the world. Flying to Kuredu, Komandoo, Hurawalhi or Lily Beach, which are home to Prodivers Maldives, with Trans Maldivian Airways is an experience of its own. Soaring through the skies and looking down at the island utopias that make up the Maldives is a mind blowing experience!
Take a sneak preview of what awaits you on board the flight on TMA’s website.
Velana International Airport
Velana International Airport (MLE) provides the main gateway for tourists visiting the country. The airport is served by many of the major international airlines with scheduled flights from Europe, Middle East and Asia (Austrian, British Airways, Emirates, Air India, Malaysia Airlines, Qatar Airways, Singapore Airlines, Swiss International Air, Srilankan Airlines, Transaero) and, several chartered flights.
TMA operates its own Sea Plane Terminal at Velana International Airport with nine exclusive Resort Lounges and a fleet of air-conditioned buses and baggage vehicles for inter-airport transfers.
If you’re travelling independently, make sure you’re booked in at a resort before buying a flight ticket. There is no such thing as walk-in in the Maldives! Once in Male, you’ll fasten your seat belts one more time and be flown across the atolls (your upcoming dive sites!) on a seaplane. Keep your camera handy!
