Trans Maldivian Airways (TMA) has expanded its fleet to a remarkable 60 aircrafts.

The airline’s 60th aircraft, a De Havilland DHC-6 Twin Otter, arrived from Canada on Wednesday evening.

TMA states it will begin to use the aircraft in operations soon.

TMA, the world’s largest seaplane operator, flies to over 80 destinations.

The airline recently won the title of World’s Leading Seaplane Operator at the World Travel Awards – the eighth time it has won the title and the sixth time it has won the title consecutively.

The expansion in TMA’s fleet comes as Maldives prepares for the tourism high season.
