An important part of organising your Maldives surf charter trip is booking your international flight. The most popular airlines for flights to Maldives are Emirates Airlines, Qatar Airways and Turkish Airlines. These allow surfers to take their boards without additional fees or surcharges. Even if the ticket is more expensive, this might save you as others might charge up to 100 US$ or more per surfboard. Compare prices and make sure you check the policies as these change regularly.
