The Maldives' national airline, Maldivian, has increased its ticket prices.
Maldivian's operator, Island Aviation's Marketing and PR Executive Ahmed Mush'il Sobah, told AVAS that the increase in ticket prices is due to increased airport handling charges. The change has led to increased fares to all regions, Sobah said.
"We increased the fare by MVR 180 for the Kaadedhdhoo route, and MVR 70 for other routes," Sobah said.
Maldivian frequently changes its ticket prices. The airline usually increases ticket prices by increasing the fuel charge when the price of oil increases.
