Seaplane spotting in the Maldives, 2016

THE MALDIVES

In 2016 I visited one of the small islands in the Maldives, which involved a flight to Dubai, a connection to Male and a further flight on a seaplane from there and of course the camera was out all the time!

The seaplane terminal is part of Velana International and serves connecting hops to the little islands that are within distance. Transmaldivian operate their de Havilland DHC Twin Otters out of here and it was great to get some photo opportunities…

Good times.

Terminal and boarding decks…
