Four Seasons’ Customised DHC-6-300 Twin Otter Airplane Takes Off

Four Seasons’ Flying Triggerfish, a customised DHC-6-300 Twin Otter airplane, is now available to guests visiting the popular holiday and honeymoon destination of Maldives in the Indian Ocean.

The aircraft, which features eight extra-wide VIP Muirhead leather seats, is being piloted by TMA, the world’s largest seaplane operator.

“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 an unique and exciting way.”

Inspired by the colourful Picasso triggerfish found in Maldivian waters, the private plane is completely customised inside and out, from a luxuriously refurbished floor, ceiling and sidewalls to an enhanced Garmin 950NXi avionics suite.

The Flying Triggerfish is one of two seaplane transfer options available to guests of Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru, a 35-minute flight from Malé International Airport.

In addition to the Flying Triggerfish, the resort utilises the services of Trans Maldivian Airways’ 14-seat seaplanes.

Regardless of their choice, guests will be greeted by Four Seasons representatives and escorted to the seaplane check-in. For added convenience, guests can opt to complete Immigration formalities in the comfort of Velana International Airport’s CIP Lounge.

Flying Triggerfish transfers are available to book per person per way or as private customised charters for up to 8 people. Private charters include CIP services. Island-hopping excursions and seaplane safaris are also available.
