Aircraft fleet expanded to 45 planes

Trans Maldivian Airways (TMA) has expanded its seaplane fleet to 45 aircrafts. The additional aircraft, a De Havilland DHC-6 Series 300, arrived last night (Friday, 24th October) at Ibrahim Nasir International Airport (INIA) after completing its journey from Calgary city in Canada.

TMA’s fleet expansion comes in-light with the growing number of tourist arrivals and increasing bed capacity with the newly opening resorts in the Maldives. Additional aircrafts are to be brought-in for the high season to meet the demand for the growing customer base.

TMA operated over 120,000 flights last year, transferring over more than 960,000 passengers including 80,000 residents.
