The level of luxury that you find in the Maldives is often mirrored in the price tag of getting there … especially from the U.S., as the Maldives is quite literally on the other side of the world.

That’s when Singapore Airlines steps in with its excellent value round-trip fares in premium economy from the East Coast, and suddenly, it doesn’t seem so bad.

It’s not often that we come across deals that are this good, so here’s what you need to know.

Fare Deal — The Details

This is a particularly hot deal as Singapore Airlines is renowned for being one of the best airlines in the world.

The amazing fare of $1,397 is only available on departures from Newark (EWR) and involves a layover in Singapore (SIN).

The long-haul flights are in premium economy, while the short-haul flights between Singapore (SIN) and Malé (MLE) are in economy.

What’s also great to know is that the dates these fares are available are during the tropical paradise’s dry season during winter in the U.S.!

  • Class: Premium Economy
  • Routes: Newark (EWR) to Malé (MLE) via Singapore (SIN)
  • Dates: September 2024 to January 2025
  • Rates: As low as $1,397 round-trip

You can travel in just 6 months from now:

And there’s also the possibility of starting 2025 off with a bang:

If you want to combine these great-value flights with luxury that won’t break the bank, then take a peek at the Maldivian-owned properties of Sun Siyam Resorts.

Hot Tip:

Best Ways To Book

These excellent value fares from New York to the Maldivian paradise are a great example of when to book with cash instead of points.

We’d recommend using a credit card such as The Platinum Card® from American Express when paying for tickets like this to earn 5x points on flights purchased directly with the airline or with AmexTravel.com (up to $500,000 per year, then 1x). Cardholders can also enroll in a Priority Pass membership to receive lounge access at Newark and Singapore, even when flying premium economy!

Final Thoughts

If you’ve been considering a trip to the Maldives but have been waiting for the right deal to come along, then we think we have found what you’ve been looking for.

It ticks all the boxes: Great value, flying with one of the world’s best airlines, more comfort than economy, and the offer is available at the best time to visit the Maldives!
