Russia’s national carrier Aeroflot has increased the number of flights to the Maldives. The decision will take effect on June 10.
The company has decided to suspend flights to Sri Lanka due to a court order to keep an Aeroflot aircraft at the Katunayake airport and to increase the number of flights to the Maldives as an alternative.
The number of Russian tourists visiting the Maldives during the past year has exceeded 67,000, which is close to 10% of the total foreign tourist arrivals in the country.
The number of Russian tourists visiting the Maldives will increase further due to the new decision of Aeroflot.
