Four Seasons Resort Maldives launches custom aircraft
Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts has unveiled a new custom aircraft at its Landaa Giraavaru property in the Maldives.
The customised DHC-6-300 Twin Otter aircraft, named the Flying Triggerfish, will operate during airport transfers to and from Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru, as well as private charters, island-hopping excursions and seaplane safaris.
The brightly-coloured aircraft, reportedly inspired by the colourful Picasso triggerfish found in Maldivian waters, features eight extra-wide leather seats, luxuriously refurbished floor, ceiling and sidewalls and Four Seasons amenities like noise-cancelling headphones.
It will be piloted by Trans Maldivian Airways and will cruise at just 3,500 feet to maximise guests’ views.
“We wanted to design a plane that celebrates the vibrancy of our destination,” said Armando Kraenzlin, Four Seasons Resorts Maldives regional vice president.
“The Flying Triggerfish offers seamless Four Seasons service and style from the moment guests arrive, in a unique and exciting way.”
The Flying Triggerfish is one of two seaplane transfer options available to guests of Landaa Giraavaru.
Guests of the resort, located in Baa Atoll a 35-minute flight from Male International Airport, can also utilise the services of Trans Maldivian Airways’ 14-seat seaplanes.
Flying Triggerfish transfers are available to book per person per way or as private customised charters for up to eight people.
