Tourist arrivals from Ukraine to the Maldives has seen a significant growth over the recent years specially after air travel between the two countries became easier.
Azur Air Ukraine and Ukraine International Airlines began flight services to Velana International Airport in December 2020. Both airlines operated chartered flights on demand during peak season.
At the end of 2021 35,073 tourists arrived to the Maldives from Ukraine which was a 239% increase in comparison to 2020.
As Ukraine air travel comes to a near halt it has severely impacted tourist arrivals to the Maldives.
However, there has been not much affect to changes in number of tourist arrivals from Russia.
Prior to the Ukraine Russia Conflict just in January of 2022 5,355 tourists arrived to the Maldives from Ukraine.
