Maldivian Seeking To Lease An Additional Airbus A320 Family Aircraft

Island Aviation Services Limited, the parent company of Maldivian, the national airline of the Maldives, has issued a call for proposals from eligible parties to add a narrow-body aircraft to expand its direct international flights.

Maldivian seeks to lease one Airbus A319ceo or A320ceo aircraft on an Operating Lease basis for a preferred lease period of 3 years. The selected aircraft is to be delivered promptly to ensure readiness for commercial operation by September 2024.

Eligible parties interested in providing the specified Airbus aircraft are invited to submit their proposals by the deadline.

Maldivian is currently adding a wide-body aircraft as well to relaunch direct flights to key tourist destinations. China has been prioritized as a significant destination in this strategic move. Previously, Maldivian had utilized Airbus aircraft for flights to destinations such as China often incorporating transit routes due to the absence of long-haul capable vessels.

Maldivian’s current fleet consists of 25 aircraft including seaplanes, ATR 72/42, DHC-8 and one Airbus A320.
