TMA Sets Record with 6,000 Passenger Transfers in a Single Day

Trans Maldivian Airways (TMA) has recorded the highest number of transfers in a single day on 11th of February, facilitating the transfer of over 6,000 passengers.

TMA reached the milestone on the same day as the Maldives marked the highest number of visitors in a single day, marking the busiest day of the year for the nation. On February 11th, the island nation welcomed a staggering 10,213 tourists.


As the oldest and most experienced transport provider in the Maldives, TMA has been the preferred way to connect guests from Velana International Airport to over 90 resorts across 16 atolls. From its humble beginnings with 2 aircraft and 4 passengers, now the World’s Largest Seaplane Operator with a fleet of 65 aircrafts, TMA has grown to become one of the largest companies in the Maldives, a key contributor to tourism infrastructure.

The growth of TMA has been closely tied to the rise of tourism in the Maldives. Seaplane services have greatly improved travel access to the scattered islands, expanding resort options beyond Male’ atoll. TMA has consistently adapted to meet tourism demands, adding eight new seaplanes and over ten resorts in the past three years. They’ve even extended services to new atolls to include Laamu & Gaafu Alifu.
