Manta Air’s Newest Twin Otter Arrives in Maldives

Manta Air is set to expand its fleet with the addition of another Twin Otter seaplane.

The De Havilland DHC6-300 Twin Otter has undertaken an extensive ferry flight originating from Fort Pierce, USA. Following a lengthy final leg of 10 hours from the UAE, the aircraft has now touched down at Velana International Airport.

Upon its arrival, the aircraft is slated for a significant transformation at Manta Air’s base situated in Dhaalu Atoll. The existing wheels will be swapped out for floats, a modification that readies the Twin Otter for its upcoming seaplane operations.

This latest acquisition underscores Manta Air’s unwavering dedication to delivering unparalleled air travel experiences within the Maldives.

Passengers can anticipate the exhilarating experience of soaring through the skies on Manta Air’s seaplanes. These flights offer not only the convenience of water landings but also afford passengers with stunning aerial views of the Maldives’ breathtaking landscapes.
