Maldivian has successfully launched its long-awaited seaplane service to Fulhadhoo, becoming the first airline to offer direct flights from Male. The inaugural flight took just 25 minutes, marking a major milestone after more than three years of negotiations and planning.

Regular seaplane flights will begin in the upcoming 2023-2024 season, and are expected to attract a greater number of tourists to the island. Fulhadhoo is home to stunning beaches, coral reefs, and other natural attractions, and the seaplane service will provide visitors with unparalleled access to these wonders.

Both Maldivian and local authorities are optimistic about the positive impact of the new seaplane service on the local economy and the wider region. The improved accessibility is expected to stimulate economic growth, foster opportunities for local businesses, and spur infrastructure development on the island.

The seaplane service is also a major boost for tourism in the Maldives, as it will make it easier for visitors to reach some of the country's most remote and beautiful islands. Fulhadhoo is just one of many islands that are now accessible by seaplane, and this trend is likely to continue in the years to come.

The launch of the seaplane service is a significant achievement for Maldivian, and it is a sign of the airline's commitment to providing its passengers with the best possible travel experience. With this new service, Maldivian is well-positioned to continue to grow its tourism business and play a leading role in the development of the Maldives' economy.
