Low-cost carrier Flydubai will be flying again to the Maldives after more than six months of suspension due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The UAE-based airline will restart its passenger services to the popular travel destination starting from October 27. The flights will operate four times a week to Male on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

This brings the number of destinations Flydubai operates to 40 across its network in Africa, Central Asia, Europe, Indian subcontinent and the Middle East, the airline said on Sunday.

“The service, which the carrier initially operated between 2013 and 2018, will be reinstated… due to popular demand,” the airline said.

The Indian Ocean destination started welcoming back international visitors earlier this summer.‘

Ghaith Al Ghaith, Flydubai’s chief executive officer, said they continue to see “signs of recovery” in the travel industry as more countries are reopening their borders.

“Working together, all the stakeholders in the travel industry have a role to play to safeguard travel in this new environment enabling more people to travel confidently. We remain agile in our operations and committed to gradually adding more flights to further support the flow of trade and tourism around the region as we look ahead to this new way of travel in the months to come,” Al Ghaith said.

On July 15, Maldives reopened its borders to international visitors.
