Velana International Airport is the primary airport located on Hulhumale Island. It is also known by the name Malé Velana International Airport. Distanced at a mere 4.4 km from the Malé city, this airport offers regular flights on a daily basis.
The Gan International Airport is the secondary airport in the Maldives. Situated in Addu city, it is 542 km apart from Male city. Also, there are no regular flights on a daily basis at this airport. Hence, the Velana International Airport is preferred over this one.
Those looking for not just a regular trip during their travel must opt for cruises instead of flying to the Maldives. The cruise ships start from either Mumbai or Kochi, two of the most important ports in India. Travellers can opt between budget or luxury travel options when it comes to a cruise ship. The average package range for a cruise from India to the Maldives starts at INR 25,000 per person, excluding taxes, port fees, and other additional charges for personal expenses.
