The Maldives luxury island resort located in the pristine Haa Alifu Atoll, Hideaway Beach recently presented an exciting upgrade on one of the most loved services which is part of the quintessential Maldives experience – Seaplane Transfers. From June 1 onwards, they will be chartering two Trans Maldivian Airways (TMA) seaplane flights a day instead of the current one seaplane transfer. The flight duration for the seaplane transfers is around 75 minutes from the airport, straight to the resort.

“The newly launched additional two seaplane transfers per day will help guest arrivals and departures with the added comfort of enjoying more freedom, fewer hassles, and better connectivity to and from their respective hideaways at Hideaway and The Signature Collection”, mentions Desislav Gospodinov – Group Director of Sales & Marketing. “It is our goal and vision to make connectivity to our beautiful slice of paradise as seamless as possible so that guests can enjoy the great experiences that we have like no other in the Maldives without worrying too much about getting to the property. With our transfer partners we will continue working tirelessly to improve the transfer experience to our large island resort as much as possible”.
