Manta Air, the foremost airline in the Maldives, is delighted to announce the commencement of direct flights from India to the idyllic Maldives. The momentous announcement unfolded at a distinguished event held at the stylish Bang at The Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Bengaluru.

In an effort to redefine air travel between India and the Maldives, Manta Air will operate non-stop flights from Bengaluru’s Kempegowda International Airport to the Maldives’ Dhaalu Airport. This initiative enables travelers to bypass the complexities and added expenses associated with transiting through the main Velana International Airport in Male, granting direct access to numerous luxury resorts situated in the Dhaalu atoll.

As the premier seaplane and domestic airline operator in the Maldives, Manta Air is committed to providing passengers with a seamless travel experience and outstanding customer service. By offering direct flights to Dhaalu Airport, visitors heading to resorts in that Atoll can save on typical transit time and additional transfer costs incurred when using the traditional Male’ airport route. Manta Air will facilitate smooth immigration processes exclusively for its guests at Dhaalu Airport, ensuring swift transfers. Dhaalu Atoll boasts some of the country’s finest resorts, including Kandima Maldives, Niyama Private Islands, St. Regis Maldives, RIU, Baglioni, Angsana Velavaru, and Sun Siyam Iru Veli.

Flight schedules have been meticulously designed to allow guests to maximize their stay in the Maldives, with all flights arriving in the mornings and departing late in the evenings for India.

These direct flights are scheduled to commence in January 2024.

Ahmed Maumoon, Deputy CEO of Manta Air, remarked, “This announcement marks a pivotal moment in our company’s trajectory – transitioning from the leading domestic and seaplane carrier in the Maldives to an international airline operator. Manta Air’s expansion through a new direct flight route from India to the Maldives anticipates a surge in travel interest and bookings from Indian tourists. This strategic move aims to enhance the guest experience and boost bookings for resorts in Dhaalu atoll, particularly Kandima, RIU Hotel, and Niyama Private Islands, all conveniently located in close proximity to the airport. By facilitating easier and more affordable travel access to the Maldives, we foresee a substantial increase in travel demand from Bengaluru and across India in 2024 and beyond.”

This strategic initiative signifies a major milestone for the homegrown Maldives’ airline and acknowledges India as a pivotal source market for the Maldives. Manta Air, in collaboration with premium partner resorts, will curate exclusive combined packages for the respective properties that are conveniently connected to Dhaalu Airport. These thoughtfully designed offers ensure end-to-end convenience for international travelers from India, resulting in significant savings on flight time and costs. With this initiative, Manta Air aims to enhance the in-flight experience, streamline international travel processes, and eliminate the need for intermediary travel requirements or connecting domestic flights within the Maldives.
