    EaseMyTrip resumed booking to Maldives: INC Kerala

    Bookings did occur between May 16th - 26th: Nishant

    Why focus only on us?: Nishant

During the conflict between India and Maldives over the stationing of the Indian Army in Maldivian territory, Indian-based travel agency EaseMyTrip had taken a stance to not host bookings to Maldives on its platform. The Kerala unit of the Indian National Congress (INC) had remarked that this stance was overturned ever since the issue died down. “Couple of months ago online travel aggregator EaseMyTrip made a nationalistic move by removing Maldives as a destination from their flight and hotel booking platform to support Modi. Now they have quietly resumed booking to Maldives. We are wondering what happened. Is it a sign of something? Is money more important than Modi? Money will come and go, so will Modi,” a post from the X account of INC Kerala unit stated.

The Founder and CEO of EaseMyTrip Nishant Pitti responded to INC Kerala’s post. He admitted that certain bookings to Maldives were indeed made through the EaseMyTrip portal. “Dear Congress, thank you for your concern. EaseMyTrip has halted Maldives bookings from January 8th until today. Some bookings did occur between May 16th – 26th, but we took immediate action and got them removed. Why focus only on us? Are you not aware of other Chinese-owned travel portals that never stopped promoting Maldives in the first place? We’ve been serving for the last 16 years without any foreign investments. Money will come and go but our nationalistic approach will never change. We are here for the long haul, and it’s not easy for us to go,” Nishant remarked.
