Etihad is offering cheap flights from Zurich to the Maldives for €485 for a round trip!
Maldives is a tropical archipelago which consists of about 1200 coral islands and countless lagoons, grouped in a double chain of 26 atolls in the heart of the Indian Ocean. For short hops, boat is the cheapest option for getting around the atolls. Hop on board the traditional Maldivian dhoni and pay a visit to the smallest resorts in the Maldives, getting a glimpse of life on local islands. Some dhonis are available for charter. There is also a public MTCC ferry network connecting all the inhabited islands daily (except on Friday). Ferries are cheap but relatively slow, so if you lack time, a speedboat is definitely recommended. There are transfers included in the package tours.
If you travel outside Malé atoll then you will have a to book a domestic flight or a supply dhoni. To reach remote resorts you’ll need to choose far pricier seaplane. Trans Maldivian Airways provide seaplane transfer services out of Ibrahim Nasir Airport in Malé to a large number of tourist resorts.
