Maldivian airline, BeOnd, just took delivery of its second aircraft and has added three new routes offering service to the Maldives. The airline is adding flights to/from Velana International Airport (MLE) this July.
BeOnd launched in November 2022 and offers flights to Munich International Airport (MUC), Riyadh King Khalid International Airport (RUH), and Zurich Airport (ZRH). Each route runs 2x weekly. It has been flying an Airbus A319-100 with only 44 Business Class seats. Its second aircraft is an Airbus A321-200 with 68 Business Class seats. BeOnd plans to continue to add to its fleet until it reaches 32 planes in 2029.
New routes include flights between Velana International Airport (MLE) and:
- Bangkok’s Don Mueang International Airport (DMK) (frequency and start date not yet announced)
- Dubai World Central – Al Maktoum International Airport (DWC) (2x weekly; starts on July 2nd)
- Milan Malpensa Airport (MXP) (2x weekly; starts on July 3rd)
Tero Taskila, CEO and Chair at Beond, said:
We are pleased to accept delivery of our second aircraft. Our new customers in Milan, Dubai, and Bangkok will be impressed to see this stunning aircraft at their home airports, and they’ll be thrilled at the service from the start to finish of their journey. We are firmly on track to operate 32 luxurious aircraft with a private jet feel within the next five years, delivering on the promise of our ground-breaking business model in the airline industry and pioneering experience for passengers.”
Fares are not cheap, but they’re less expensive than other Business Class seats on competing carriers (and none of those are nonstop from these airports).
Anthony’s Take: I’ve never been to the Maldives and this looks like a great way to get there. Another one added to the list.
