Maldivian to launch new service between Seenu, Huvadhoo Atoll

Maldivian, the national carrier of the Maldives, will launch a new domestic service under the South Connectivity Initiative, connecting Gan International Airport (GAN) in Seenu atoll and Kooddoo Airport (GKK) in Huvadhoo atoll twice weekly, from 29th October 2024.

South Connectivity is an initiative led by the government of Maldives, in collaboration with Maldivian, Addu International Airport, Ministry of Transport and Civil Aviation, Maldives Marketing and Public Relations Corporation and the Ministry of Tourism, to deliver enhanced tourism connectivity and commercial links, supporting the development of the Southern Zone.

This initiative underscores Maldivian’s commitment to enhancing connectivity for both locals and tourists in the Maldives, marking a pivotal advancement in fostering a resilient tourism ecosystem that serves the interests of visitors and the local communities alike. The service between GAN and GKK facilitates a direct connection for arriving tourists to Gan International Airport via Sri Lankan Airlines, giving access to over 2,100 resort and guest house beds in Gaaf Alifu and Gaaf Dhaalu atoll. The new route will further support import/export trade for local businesses in the Southern Zone.

Ticket bookings for the service will be available from 4th April 2024, from Maldivian’s sales channels including the official website, mobile application, ticketing office and via sales agents, allowing travellers to plan and secure their journeys well in advance.
