Trans Maldivian Airways Becomes Frist In Asia To Receives De Havilland Canada’s Endorsement Certificate

Trans Maldivian Airways (TMA), renowned as the world’s largest seaplane operator, has achieved a significant milestone by receiving an endorsement certificate from De Havilland Canada. This recognition marks TMA as the first operator in Asia to achieve this prestigious endorsement.

The endorsement specifically acknowledges TMA’s Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul (MRO) facility as a DHC-endorsed Service Center. De Havilland Canada, a prominent Canadian aerospace company, manufactures the iconic Twin Otter aircraft, which TMA operates.

The official endorsement handover ceremony took place last Sunday, where De Havilland’s Chief Executive Officer, Brian Chafe, personally awarded the certificate to TMA’s Chief Executive Officer, A.U.M Fauzy. The event was graced by the presence of De Havilland owners, Sherry Brideson and Robert McDonald, along with senior representatives from both companies.

During the ceremony, CEO Fauzy expressed gratitude to De Havilland for their continued support, which has played a crucial role in TMA’s success. The endorsement not only validates TMA’s commitment to excellence but also highlights the airline’s dedication to maintaining the highest standards in aircraft maintenance and service.

De Havilland’s CEO, Brian Chafe, emphasized TMA’s remarkable achievement of completing two million flight cycles, a feat unparalleled anywhere else. The endorsement reinforces the strong partnership between the two companies and ensures continued support for TMA’s operations in the future.

As TMA continues to connect the Maldives’ picturesque islands through its seaplane services, this endorsement from De Havilland Canada serves as a testament to the airline’s commitment to safety, reliability, and excellence.
