In an exciting move to enhance guest experiences, JA Manafaru, renowned as ‘The Real Maldives’, will be introducing a daily seaplane service starting from January 24, 2024. Operated by Trans Maldivian Airways (TMA), this door-to-door service will connect Male’s seaplane terminal to Haa Alifu Atoll.
General Manager of JA Manafaru, Jason Kruse, expressed, “The opportunity for a seaplane connection is a once-in-a-lifetime moment for many guests, and we are committed to making our guest experience as unique and memorable as possible. Partnering with TMA will offer enhanced transfer convenience and overall experience, with three flights on Mondays and Saturdays, and two flights on other days.”
To complement this service, JA Manafaru ensures top-notch airport assistance, chauffeuring guests between terminals upon international arrival, and providing refreshments at TMA’s VIP seaplane lounge.
Shubham Moondhara, Head of Corporate Strategy and Business Development at TMA, shared his enthusiasm, saying, “We are delighted to have JA Manafaru on board to utilize TMA’s seaplane services for their guests. A seaplane journey in the Maldives is an extraordinary experience that transcends mere transportation, and we look forward to providing JA Manafaru guests the most scenic ride to their island home.”
This new seaplane service further solidifies JA Manafaru's commitment to offering guests unparalleled and unforgettable experiences in the heart of the Maldives.
