Rebranding was mainly to create a strong foundation to further differentiate the company in its current market and to give it a name that reflects its origin - the Maldives and its population.
With the first flights to Trivandrum, India, Maldivian started its first global operation on January 25, 2008. This was a name that immediately recognized the company as the most important carrier in the land and reflects the virtues of the people. To bridge the geographic, culturally and economically differences for the Maldives within the Maldives and to open up to other points all over the world.
Maldives - the Maldives' domestic carrier links the islands and provides its clients with secure and comfortable flights that unite our state. It is also an important connection between aeronautics and travel within the Maldives and beyond to welcome our visitors to explore and enjoy the beauties and possibilities that the Maldives have to provide.
The dolphin is a wonderful sea animal found in the Maldivian oceans. Considered cordial and kind, they rightly reflect the airline's company vision: "the kindest carrier with unparalleled excellence". Paintwork colours are the distinctive blues you see as you fly over the Maldives, which reflect the sea and the clear skies at various depht.
That is why we, the Maldivian staff, believe that the colours and the dolphins really are reflective and part of us, while you, our clients and partner, are flying with us to your goal.
