Thailand's Bangkok Airways Announces Resume of its Operations to Maldives in July

PUBLISHED June 12, 2022 | updated June 12, 2022 01:06

Bangkok Airways used to operate four flights a week from Bangkok to the Maldives until they were suspended in March 2020 due to COVID-19.

From July 22, the Thai regional airline will begin flying between Suvarnabhumi Airport in Thailand and Velana International Airport in Maldives once again. The Bangkok-Male services will operate four flights weekly (Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays).

With the resumption of Bangkok Airways flights, the Male-Bangkok route will be served by two airlines, with the second being Thai AirAsia. Thai AirAsia, which began on December 22 last year operates twice a week service between Don Mueang International Airport and Velana International Airport, with flights operating on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

While Thailand has now reopened after the COVID-19 pandemic, those who have completed COVID-19 vaccination are not required to be quarantined upon arrival.
