Luke Air, operated by Blue Panorama Airlines, resumed weekly charter flights from Poland to Maldives on Thursday, with their A330 aircraft.

The flights are chartered by Polish tour operator ITAKA and managed by local agent, Sun Ocean Maldives.

The first charter flight on Thursday carried 297 tourists from Poland.

The weekly charter flights are scheduled to continue until April next year.

Visit Maldives is running a joint campaign with ITAKA to promote Maldives as a safe haven in Poland and boost arrivals from the market.

According to Visit Maldives, the campaign involves digital marketing activities and outdoor ambient campaigns to promote renowned products and uniquely Maldivian experiences offered in the destination, with emphasis on the safety provided by the natural socially-distanced geography of the Maldivian islands.

With an arrival figure of over 8,000 tourists, the Polish market is an emerging potential top source market to Maldives.
