Visiting Maldives for the first time? There is only
one way to get here...
Although there are other airports in Maldives, there is only one way to enter the island, and that is to fly to the Velana international airport, which is located on the Huhule Island. But if you live in close-by countries such as India or Sri Lanka, you can travel to Maldives island through their domestic airports.
We love the Maldives airport. It’s not too big, nor too small. As soon as you step off that plane you will get the feeling of a tropical getaway.
Velana International Airport
Once you have arrived at Velana International airport, you can take a ferry to the capital city of Male, which will take around 15 minutes to reach.
Sri Lankan airways used to be the only major airlines that used to fly to Maldives. But now many other airline fly to Maldives such as:
British airways and Sri Lankan airlines now provide a non-stop flight from UK to Maldives.
