Fast-tracking saves time and hassle and makes the passage through an otherwise busy or difficult airport both fast and easy. A successful Fast-tracked airport service is one where you did not have to queue in line, and/or the time it took to pass through the airport was reduced. Fast-tracking is achieved differently in each airport. In Malé airport a VIP Lounge special fast track handling is used for Immigration

Yes. Absolutely. We only used licensed companies, agents and staff who have the necessary airport security clearances, approvals and passes to work in secure non-public areas and provide the services that have been booked. All our services are pre-ordered and pre-arranged with airport departments (which is why we often need passenger passport data). See more Maldives Airport FAQ for Malé

For arrivals they will be waiting with a signboard for you at the foot of the stairs down from the airplane onto the armac
For departures they will be waiting for you in the VIP private lounge Where you will be met is described in your booking confirmation.
Firstly you should look really carefully, for you name board as sometimes they are easy to miss due to congestion, jet lag, passengers checking their handphone messages as they disembark, or crowded areas where lots of uniformed staff are waiting with name boards. If you really cannot see the greeter then you must all the local Maldives emergency number, or use the emergency contact chat link we will have sent you.
Yes. Children are welcome. There is a 100% discount for infants aged under 24 months. There are no discounts for children aged 3 years or older, nor for “Family Groups”.
If you already have your booking confirmation you must E-mail us with the Change request as soon as you can. Where we get less than 48 hours notice of a major Change or Cancellation then a percentage of the price paid may be charged. See the Terms and conditions for details. If you do not present yourself to the airport representative, or if you decide not to take a service that has booked, this will be classed as a no-show cancellation and there will be no refund or credit for that service.
No. But major Changes should be advised to us. A Major Change is a change which will affect how, when and where the service you have booked is given. For example a Major Change would be a change in the named “lead” passenger, in the date of service, of the flight number, or a significant change in the kerbside meeting time for a departure, or a request for an additional feature (like a porter, buggy, lounge) or a change to the number of passengers to be served. If in doubt E-mail us
Malé Airport has its own airport rules and regulations. These policies who may supersede the local provider’s own operating procedures. Sometimes there is a temporary security clampdown or similar temporary alert condition ordered. Both of these may effect parts of the usual VIP service. In such a cases, these are beyond our control.
Also, there are Maldives Quarantine & health regulations and rules in force due to COVID-19. Permission to enter a country, or to board a flight, and/or the imposition of related quarantine or other restrictions are decided by local border control, the local health authorities, and/or the airline
Our service helps with a safe and speedy passge through the airport.
To minimize contact, congestion & lines, bypass bottlenecks, and avoid inconvenience, you will use a private lounge and your representative will handle visa on arrival, check-in, and passing through security checks, and fast-tracked CIQ processing.
