Following the COVID-19 pandemic flights from China to the Maldives have been halted to this day with hardly any tourists arriving from the country which once dominated the tourist market in the country.

The Chinese government is set to ease travel restrictions on 8th January 2023. The continuation of flights from China will provide an immense boost to the tourism industry in the Maldives.
