By domestic flight transfer:
Domestic flights operate between Velana International Airport (MLE) and the neighboring Villa Airport Maamigili (VAM). To arrange your domestic flight transfer, please let us know at least five days in advance.
The pick-up and drop-off point for the transfer is the Villa Airport Maamigili (VAM), and you will need to return to the Villa Airport Maamigili (VAM) for your transfer to the resort if you are at another location in the Maldives before your arrival at our resort.
The exact seaplane timings can only be confirmed the evening before your scheduled arrival or departure because seaplanes are operated by a third-party company that prepares the schedule the evening before your travel to and from the resort. The resort is not responsible for any supplementary charges incurred due to seaplane transfers being canceled by the service provider.
Upon arrival at Velana International Airport (MLE), our Airport Team will welcome you and escort you to the Domestic Terminal, where you can check in for your domestic transfer and wait for the airplane’s departure. The waiting time for the domestic flight transfer is approximately two hours from the time of check-in and is dependent on airline operations and weather conditions. Once the airplane is ready for boarding and departure, you may follow the instructions of the airport and airline staff. The airplane flight is a direct flight between the Velana International Airport (MLE) and the Villa Airport Maamigili (VAM). The domestic flight journey takes approximately 30 minutes each way. Once you have arrived at Villa Airport Maamigili (VAM), you will be received by our front office team, and they will escort you to the speedboat. From there, it is a 15-minute speedboat ride to the Radisson Blu Resort, Maldives.
