Maldives Marks a Major Milestone of a Million Visitors!


As the leading destination management company of the Maldives since 1990, Capital Travel Maldives is exhilarated at the welcoming of 1 millionth visitor to the World’s Leading Destination of the year 2021!

A special ceremony was held at Velana International Airport to celebrate the one millionth tourist arrival. The honor was titled to a couple that are among the loyal customers who were visiting the Maldives for the 20th time. They were welcomed with a traditional cultural welcome with numerous gifts including a holiday visit.

The 1 Millionth Tourist Mr Victor Vincent Corentin from France arrived from EK652 flight that landed in Velana International Airport.  Victor and his spouse were given a complimentary holiday package sponsored by Villa Resorts and hotels for 6 nights at Paradise Island Resort which can be redeemed during a period of 1 year. This is the couple’s 20th time visiting the Maldives. In addition to this, Club Med Kani upgraded their accommodation and also prepared a warm welcome for the tourists. 

Speaking regarding the achievement of this significant milestone, Minister of Tourism Dr. Abdullah Mausoom stated that “today we turn yet another page of the remarkable success story of Maldives tourism. Reaching our target tourist arrivals of One Million for the year 2021, two months in advance is a remarkable achievement. Congratulations to His Excellency President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih, industry partners & employees, health professionals, local councils, related Ministries, authorities and agencies, NGOs and volunteers, tourists, fellow Maldivians; and MMPRC and Ministry of Tourism team for the continuous engagement and support towards Maldives tourism recovery. Thank you all for the valuable contributions to Maldives tourism success story.”

CEO & Managing Director of MMPRC, Mohamed Thoyyib congratulated the tourism industry and its stakeholders for this major milestone “This milestone is only possible due to the perseverance and dedication shown by the government and all the industry stakeholders. Regardless of the predicaments faced due to the pandemic MMPRC ensured the destination was promoted in the most effective and efficient manner so as to maintain destination momentum, create brand awareness and market Maldives as a safe haven. The roles of industry stakeholders in delivering what we market abroad is what brings tourists to our shores.” 

While we celebrated the arrival of the 1 millionth visitor to the country this year, all this could not have been possible without the collective effort of the Government, Ministry of Tourism, MMPRC and all of the valuable stakeholders of the industry. Capital Travel Maldives is proud to be part of this milestone and look forward to welcoming even more visitors in the future!
