As a state-owned Maldivian airline, Maldivian - formerly Island Aviation Services - provides services directly to its capital at Malé International Airport. Founded in the millennium, the airline made mainly domestic flights to destinations of its own islands. Instead of going by boat, the inhabitants of the country developed an almost half-expensive travel option, which was frequented and satisfied. Due to the state character, the appearance was changed in 2008 - the Maldivian was created with their new appearance in the colors red and white and the curved lettering. In order to increase the distance of their destinations, the Maldivian took over in 2008 a bombardier of Augsburg Airways. The resulting airline miles advantage brought another offer, a good load and launched in 2012 a new purchase of a Bombardier, this time from the Intersky.
The airline was thus given the opportunity to operate feeder services for some intercontinental flights in both directions and to expand its own sphere of activity. In addition, the airline began providing services such as maintenance, cargo transportation, and ground-based groundhandling and created another field of activity in national and international air traffic. For the guests of the Maldivian, a separate lounge on the home base was also called into being in order to make any waiting times customer-friendly and service-oriented as pleasant as possible. As of September 2019 Maldivian operates 23 planes.
