In a statement, state tourism promotion company Maldives Marketing and Public Relations Corporation (MMPRC) said Korean travelers booking tickets to the Maldives through Singapore Airlines website will get several benefits from participating resorts, including complimentary room upgrades, spa treatments, and dinner. Singapore Airlines also operates a direct, twice-a-day service to the Maldives.
The resorts participating in the marketing initiative are:

Despite falling numbers, South Korea still remains one of the top 10 source markets to the Maldives. Last year, 29,580 Korean tourists visited the Maldives, which was a 10.4 percent drop from the previous year. However, arrivals from Korea have picked up this year, with 12,720 tourists visiting the Maldives by May –an 18.4 percent increase compared to the same period of last year.
Korea’s flagship carrier Korean Air also operates a three-day-a-week service on Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday from Seoul’s Incheon International Airport to the Maldives main Velana International Airport via Colombo.
