TORONTO — In keeping with the post-pandemic trends of wide, open spaces and off-the-beaten-path destinations, Goway is reporting 75% grown in passenger numbers to the Maldives compared to 2019, the last full year prior to the pandemic.
The tour operator has partnered with The Maldives Tourism Board to capitalize on this growing interest, and has 25 dedicated Destination Specialists handling bookings to the Maldives ranging from luxury honeymoons to multi-generational family getaways and snorkelling/scuba adventures.
Goway offers a wide range of budget options to the destination, plus fully-customizable inclusions. Clients can customize a city and beach combo that includes the Maldives, or stopover in such cities as Dubai, Doha, Singapore, Paris and Istanbul before connecting to the Maldives for a week at the beach.
“The Maldives has been a huge success story for Goway over the past two years,” says Moira Smith, VP of Africa & Asia, Goway. “For many months during the pandemic, the Maldives was the only Asian country open to international travellers and Goway made the most of it. We’re thrilled to see a 75% increase in demand for vacations to the Maldives and will continue to expand and promote the nation’s exceptional travel products to our diverse community of travellers.”
The Maldives reopened its borders to international travellers fairly early on in the pandemic, in July 2020. In March 2022, the destination eased its entry requirements even further, dropping COVID-19 testing for fully vaccinated travellers.
