Getting to the Maldives requires flying through one of the various Asian or Indian airline hubs. From there connections can be made to Malé, capital city of the Maldives. Most resorts are located on islands away from Malé and transportation to these locations is provided by ferry, private boat or sea plane. Resorts often provide their own transportation from the international airport however reservations for transfers must be made in advance.
On your way to Malé, why not consider a stop over in Asia, India or even Dubai or Abu Dhabi? Your Travel Associates consultant can recommend the ideal routing for an exciting side trip. Common stop-over cities between Australia and Malé include Singapore, Hong Kong, Seoul, Kuala Lumpur and Guangzhou. And with direct services from Abu Dhabi and Dubai, a Maldives trip is the perfect diversion on the homeward bound journey back to Australia from Europe.
