The Maldives is about to get a little more accessible.
Dubbing itself the world’s first “premium leisure” airline, Maldives-based startup carrier Beond is launching point-to-point flights between cities across Europe and Asia and the nation’s capital of Malé starting in November.
At a press conference in Dubai on Wednesday, the new luxury airline unveiled its first plane: an Airbus A319, complete with a unique all-business-class interior. The company said it expects to receive Airbus A321 jets next year.
Take a look at what customers can expect onboard the airline’s newly unveiled A319, which has been customized to offer a “private jet” experience.
