Maldivian, the National Carrier of the Republic of the Maldives, owned and operated by Island Aviation Services Limited (IAS), has appointed Bird Travels, the airline management service arm of Bird Group, as its General Sales Agent (GSA) in Mumbai.
The appointment is part of Maldivian’s expansion in India, which aims to strengthen the airline’s sales team and provide support to the Indian travel trade.
Maldivian is the leading domestic carrier ‘connecting the atolls’ within the Maldives and providing its customers with safe and convenient air transportation all year round. On the international front, the airline currently operates in India and Bangladesh from its main hub at Velana International Airport.
The announcement also comes at a time when the Island nation is witnessing a surge in inbound tourists from India like never before. Currently, Maldives is the only country offering Indians travel with the least encumbrances.
Talking about the strategic importance of the Indian market for the airline, Aishath Jennifer, Deputy Managing Director, said, “The Maldives is the top destination in the South Asian region and the main leisure market for Indian travelers; this relationship with Bird is a vital one for us and one we believe will flourish.”
With over 47 years of experience, Bird Group is one of India’s leading travel management companies representing 28 international airlines in India. The GSA office for Maldivian will be located in Mumbai.
