JOALI Guests Will Use Their Private And Luxury JOALI branded Seaplane


Trans Maldivian Airways unveils exclusive JOALI Maldives branded aircraft on 1st March 2020. The aircraft has been designed carefully to complement the resort’s philosophy “the joy of living” with the inspiration drawn from the nature and soul of JOALI Maldives.

The new seaplane looks extremely elegant with its simple design, tones of metallic rose gold and copper on the wings as well as the name JOALI on its body. The 08 seater JOALI branded aircraft offers ultimate comfort with adjustable leather seats, brighter interiors and spacious leg room.


The maiden flight on the JOALI branded aircraft was celebrated with the cutting of the ribbon. After which, guests enjoyed the picturesque view of the Maldivian islands and the turquoise seas on the scheduled TMA seaplane journey to JOALI Maldives.

It has been a special start to the year as manta rays, spotted eagle rays, turtles, and dolphins continue to make regular appearances around the island.
I am Incredibly excited for guests to experience our special event calendar over the next few months. Among the highlights, I would like to mention: full-flavoured dinners courtesy of Michelin star chefs, talented and creative artists designing new art pieces for our immersive art collection, a selection of new treatments at the JOALI Spa by ESPA to focus solely on you, and the very best Easter celebration.
Also, as one more story unfolds, on the 1st of March, we will be celebrating the launch of our new private seaplane. The warmest of thanks from myself and the entire JOALI team.”
