Transport from the Airport

If you have booked a holiday to Maldives via a Travel Agent normally they will greet you at the airport. Sometimes a fee is charged or included for this service in your holiday package.

If you have booked to stay in a resort hotel you may be either transferred by speed boat or seaplane or by air. A ferry service is operates from the airport island to the capital around the clock. A special dhoni ferry leaves from the airport jetty to the capital every 15 minutes until midnight. After midnight the ferry leaves every 30 minutes.


Ferry dhonis can be chartered for transfer to the capital at set rates. Details for this can be attained from the ferry terminal at the jetty of the airport.

Air Transport

Maldivian Air Taxi and Trans Maldivian Airways operate special air transfer trips to most of the resorts. This mode of transport is best arranged by your agents or the resort operative. Normally resort operators have arrangements for chartered flights to their resort with either of these parties.
If you travelling to North or South Atolls you can catch Maldivian flight operated by Island aviation.

If you book your cruise with CruiseMaldives.co.uk we arrange your transfer to the cruise yacht.
