What you need to know about Malé to Colombo flights¬

There are numerous direct departures a day that leave the island-top capital of the Maldives for the bustling, salt-washed capital of Sri Lanka.

When can I book cheap flights to Colombo from Malé?

Book your cheap flights to Colombo from Malé when the Yala Monsoon (May-August) is dousing the beaches and tea fields of Sri Lanka and you could be surprised at just how affordable these connections are. Although you might have to contend with tropical downpours at that time of year, you can still enjoy the hustle of the Colombo markets, and the untrodden sands of the wilder east coast – which is having its dry season then.

Arriving at Malé Airport

The Velana International Airport in Malé is a real joy to reach. Sat on its very own island across the sparkling waters from the capital, you'll have to come by sea. Thankfully, regular ferries connect the main harbour of the city with the departure halls every 10 minutes during the day – expect to pay around MVR 16 for the ride. If you're coming in from one of the further-flung hotel resorts in the atolls, then it's likely you'll have your own sea plane or boat transfer direct to the runways.

In all, the journey covers 484 miles.

Alternatively, you could hop into a pre-paid taxi to the centre, for which you can expect to pay around LKR 3,000.

What to do when in Colombo
