Goway says it has marked significant growth in its Maldives travel product line during the global pandemic.

The tour operator says it has seen 75 per cent growth in its passenger numbers on vacations to the Maldives compared to 2019, the last full year prior to the pandemic. 

"This growth demonstrates Goway’s expertise in and continued commitment to providing idyllic retreats in sunny and warm destinations such as the Maldives," the company said Wednesday (April 20) 

The Maldives has been an ideal destination to visit since it reopened its borders to international travellers in July 2020. 

Each resort is located on its own private island and offers intimacy and safety in a moment of uncertainty. 

For much of the pandemic, the Maldives was the only destination in Asia open to international travellers, which added to its natural appeal as a luxury beach destination. 

In March 2022, the Maldives eased its entry requirements even further, dropping testing for fully-vaccinated travellers.

Goway has partnered with The Maldives Tourism Board to capitalize on this growing interest and to become one of North America’s most trusted travel providers for vacations to the Maldives.

Goway has 25 dedicated Destination Specialists handling bookings to the Maldives. 

These specialists can customize everything from a luxury honeymoon escape to a multi-generational family vacation to a snorkelling and scuba diving adventure. 

The tour operator says it can also customize a city and beach combo tour that includes the Maldives. Travellers can stopover in cities including Dubai, Doha, Singapore, Paris, and Istanbul before connecting to the Maldives for a week at the beach.

“The Maldives has been a huge success story for Goway over the past two years,” said Moira Smith, VP of Africa & Asia. “For many months during the pandemic, the Maldives was the only Asian country open to international travellers and Goway made the most of it. We’re thrilled to see a 75 per cent increase in demand for vacations to the Maldives and will continue to expand and promote the nation’s exceptional travel products to our diverse community of travellers.”
