Manta Air’s 15th Twin Otter Arrived In Maldives

Manta Air yesterday  welcomed its 15th Twin Otter to its fleet. The De Havilland DHC6-300 Twin Otter made its way to Velana International Airport after a week-long journey from Florida, USA.

The aircraft will be transported to Manta Air’s base at Dhaalu airport, where it will be equipped with floats and will begin operating under the new registration 8Q-RAO.

This acquisition is part of Manta Air’s ambitious expansion plan, announced in December of last year, which involves adding 12 additional DHC6 Twin Otters to its fleet, effectively doubling its current size.

In addition to its seaplane operations, Manta Air also offers domestic flights using ATRs and Beechcraft 1900D aircraft. This latest addition to their fleet is a clear indication of the airline’s dedication to growth and expansion.
