Did You Know TMA Now Flies to These Two Brand New Maldives Resorts?

As the Maldives' Travel & Tourism industry expands, travellers are presented with brand-new destinations every single year.

With every single new resort opening, there is also the question of how to get to these new Maldives resorts to explore them. If you’re looking to explore some destinations that opened in 2023, Trans Maldivian Airways (TMA) might be your go-to seaplane operator. Just last year, TMA added two new destinations to its map, connecting travellers to new Maldives resorts. If you’re looking for your next Maldives resort getaway, explore these two destinations with TMA now.

Exploring Jawakara Islands Maldives with TMA

Jawakara Islands Maldives opened on March 2023. With this, family travellers were presented with a new luxury family-friendly resort destination. With 290 villas, Jawakara Island Maldives presents travellers with the popular one-island one-resort concept that the Maldives is popular for. One of the unique aspects of this resort is that a bridge over the Jawakara house reef connects travellers to two islands – Mabin and Dheru Island.

At Jawakara Island Maldives guests can explore Beach Villas, Beach Pool villas, Three Bedroom Villas, Two Bedroom Villas and over-water accommodations as well. Additionally, travellers can also explore the water pool villas which are suitable for families. If you’re not on a family getaway, Jawakara Islands Maldives is still the perfect destination. Dheru Island at Jawakara is an adults-only haven, where guests can explore the amazing water villas. Additionally, guests can also explore 6 restaurants and 6 bars at Jawakara Islands Maldives.

Starting in October 2023, TMA started connecting travellers to this beautiful destination. Located just 40 minutes away in Lhaviyani Atoll, Jawakara is the perfect destination to explore with TMA. With the introduction of the new resort, TMA also introduced the resort’s very own branded air-craft for travellers connecting to Jawakara Islands Maldives. In addition to Jawakara Islands Maldives, TMA also connects travellers to other popular Crown & Champa properties in the Maldives.

Barceló Whale Lagoon Maldives

The latest addition to the TMA’s new resort destination is the beautiful Barceló Whale Lagoon Maldives. Located in South Ari Atoll, this 5-star Maldives Resort brings unforgettable experiences characterized by tranquillity and comfort, all in a chic beach environment.

At Barceló Whale Lagoon Maldives guests can explore a wide array of villas as well as dining options. Whether you’re looking for beach villas or overwater villas, this resort has it all. Barceló Whale Lagoon Maldives has a total of 100 villas- 63 Beach Villas, 30 Water Villas and 7 Beach Suites with plunge pools. Additionally, travellers at Barceló Whale Lagoon Maldives have the option of exploring three restaurants, a Snack bar and three bars.

This resort is perfect for all types of travellers, however, if you’re looking to go on an adventure this is the perfect location for you. The Barceló Whale Lagoon Maldives is located close to the South Ari Marine Protected Area (SAMPA). This is an iconic site known for its many whale sharks, which can be sighted throughout the year. 

TMA started connecting travellers to The Barceló Whale Lagoon Maldives on 13th October 2023. With TMA, you can now explore this brand-new resort, which is located just 30 minutes away.

The first-ever Sea-to-Air Cargo Transshipment Commenced in the Maldives!

Velana Airport has announced the first-ever sea-to-air cargo transshipment along with Turkish Airlines, Maldives Ports Limited and Maldives Customs Service. This major step in cargo transhipment in the Maldives was celebrated on the 17th of May at the airport.

The  MoU for the ‘Sea to Air’ cargo transshipment services were signed earlier this year, on March 30th. With this, Turkish Airlines became the cargo partner to facilitate the service along with the Maldives Ports Limited (MPL).

With the transshipment service, MPL can easily transport goods through both seas as well as air travel. In addition to catering to the needs of businesses and industries in the region, this will also help expedite the carrying of goods from one place to another. According to the Turkish Airlines’ Regional Cargo Manager for Sri Lanka and Maldives Bilal Okur, this will help the airline’s target to develop the Maldives into a sea-to-air transshipment hub.

This innovative logistics solution is expected to significantly boost the efficiency of cargo movement. Additionally, this may also see the enhancement of trade opportunities for the Maldives.
