The company, which initiated in 2022, is preparing to introduce a business-class service aboard the Airbus A321. The aircraft will feature 68 flat seats with operations slated to start in fall 2023.
Beond’s initial fleet will consist of Airbus A319s, each accommodating 44 passengers. This strategy allows the airline to offer its services before moving to the larger A321 model. The carrier’s debut routes will link the Maldives with Dubai and Delhi.

Tero Taskila, Beond’s Chairman and CEO, highlighted the company’s objectives. In a press release, the CEO said the fusion of premium customer experiences with good service.
Beond’s long-term vision encompasses nonstop connectivity between the Maldives and 60 destinations spanning Europe, Americas, Asia, Africa and Australia. This plan ensures the airline’s commitment to enhancing air travel options.
