The Ministry of Transport and Civil Aviation has announced reduced prices for domestic air travel.

Prices announced by the ministry, from and to Velanaa International Airport in Kaafu atoll (VIA), are:

  • VIA to Hanimaadhoo Airport: MVR 1,610 to MVR 2,226
  • VIA to Ifuru Domestic Airport: MVR 1,500 to MVR 2,056
  • VIA to Dharavadhoo Airport: MVR 1,098 to MVR 1,562
  • VIA to Kudahuvadhoo Airport: MVR 1,500 to MVR 2,056
  • VIA to Thimarafushi Airport: MVR 1,610 to MVR 2,226
  • VIA to Kadhdhoo Airport: MVR 1,610 to MVR 2,226
  • VIA to Kooddoo Airport: MVR 1,652 to MVR 2,442
  • VIA to Kaadedhoo Airport: MVR 1,652 to MVR 2,442
  • VIA to Fuvahmulah: MVR 1,698 to MVR 2,598
  • VIA to Ifuru Domestic Airport: MVR 1,698 to MVR 2,666

Critics have expressed disappointment over the prices, which they say are not much different from the prices previously charged by airlines.

While prices for islands have been reduced by as low as MVR 188, there is also great leeway between maximum prices.

The prices will be enforced from 10th January onwards.
