India and Maldives is set to start flight operation once again, as announced by the India’s External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar during a virtual meeting with the Maldivian Foreign Minister, with a air bubble in place. This will be South Asia’s first air travel bubble.
Maldives has had a total of 6370 cases of coronavirus until now, which includes 24 cases of death. The government in Maldives had opened its borders on July 15 for tourists, and as of now there are no quarantine restrictions. According to reports from Maldives, tourists are being taken straight to their resorts from the airport, and are not having to enter Male.
The nation relies heavily on tourism and particularly on Indian tourists as India happens to be its second fastest growing tourist market.
