Recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic and on the occasion of the Golden Jubilee, every private and government tourist organization has embarked on a journey to break all previous records and make this Golden Jubilee a successful, TMA is yet another example. The key element to experiencing the one-island-one-resort concept of the Maldives is the availability of swift and safe transport and Trans Maldivian Airways (TMA) have been providing just that for ages, becoming the World’s Largest Seaplane Operator.
Starting in 1989, Trans Maldivian Airways (TMA) has been the oldest and the best in service, bridging the gap between Velana International Airport and 80 resorts across 14 atolls in the country. The TMA’s most experienced and extensive fleet welcomed a new addition, the De Havilland DHC-6 Twin Otters this Friday. With the busy season just around the corner, the Otters arrived just in time to become the 59th aircraft of the TMA fleet. The rise in visitors to the Maldives after the country opened its borders post-pandemic generated more demand for transport, to meet the ends TMA added 3 more aircraft to the fleet.
The cutting-edge Noovilu Seaplane Terminal opened by the company will now house twice as seaplanes improving efficiency and enhancing the guest experience.
