The flag carrier flies to these International destinations: Bangladesh, China, Indian and Thailand. The airline operates 23 aircrafts flying to 23 destinations. Maldivian was formally known as Island Aviation and was re-branded in August 2008. The main reason for re-branding was to establish a brand in order to further distinguish the airline in the existing markets and to give the airline a name that reflected its origins - the Maldives and its people.
