Trans Maldivian Airways Expands Fleet to 56 Aircrafts

Trans Maldivian Airways welcomed the final Twin Otter Aircraft to its fleet as part of the expansion plan to add four seaplanes, with three of them having arrived in the earlier months.

The new Twin Otter aircraft landed at Velana International Airport on 21st January 2020.  With this addition, Transmaldivian will now have 56 seaplanes operating regularly. 

TMA has played a pivotal role in developing the tourism infrastructure in Maldives and the latest addition to its fleet is in line with its commitment to serve the growing demand with the new upcoming resorts and also provide added flexibility to all its partner resorts.

A previous statement issued by TMA said

Trans Maldivian Airways has been on an expansion drive and announced their plans for the addition of four seaplanes to its fleet, with the arrival of the first seaplane in September 2019. The arrival of two more followed in December. And now the fourth one this year. 

TMA is the main seaplane operator in Maldives and the largest seaplane operator in the world. With over 30 years of experience in aviation, TMA has been continuously growing. TMA started in 1989 under the name ‘Hummingbird Island Helicopters’, as helicopter operator. The transition to a seaplane only fleet was completed by 1999. In 2000, with the tourism industry flourishing, ‘Trans Maldivian Airways’ came into existence. 

From its humble beginning, TMA has become the synonym for connecting the Maldives islands. Being the oldest air services operator in the Maldives and becoming the largest seaplane operator in the world is a remarkable achievement.
