A new airline took flight yesterday, as Beond – the world’s first premium leisure airline – unveiled its sophisticated and unique aircraft livery.

This event, celebrated in Malé, Maldives, was attended by dignitaries, investors, supporters, and employees. Simultaneously, a global media event broadcast online and in-person in Dubai captured the essence of the moment.

Beond Airlines showcased its inaugural aircraft, an Airbus A319 designed to provide a luxurious and comfortable experience for 44 passengers, all in a lay-flat configuration.

Setting a New Standard

Beond Airlines, under the leadership of its CEO, Tero Taskila, and its dedicated founders, aspires to redefine the way people experience travel.

“Welcome to Beond. Our aim is simple: to fly our customers to the most unique and unspoiled destinations where they can release their inner explorer on the most memorable vacation of their lives,” expressed Tero Taskila during the event.


This sentiment underscores the core mission of Beond Airlines – to provide a travel experience like no other.

A Grateful Beginning

During the event, Tero Taskila expressed gratitude to those who have supported Beond Airlines on its journey to becoming a trailblazing airline.

He mentioned, “Today is but the beginning of our vision for our customers, embodied by this beautiful aircraft — inside and out. We could not be more pleased to showcase it in Maldives, our home, and Dubai.”

“We wish especially to thank the government of Maldives and our supporters there, the Maldives Civil Aviation Authority, and SIMDI Group — each of whom believed in our vision for a new airline in Maldives. Our team will do its best to bring tourists to this beautiful nation.”

Upcoming Inaugural Flights

Beond’s inaugural flights are set to commence in November 2023, with the Riyadh inaugural departing on November 9, followed by the Munich inaugural on November 15 and the Zurich inaugural on November 17.

This marks the beginning of an exciting journey for Beond Airlines and its passengers.

What sets Beond Airlines apart is its commitment to delivering the ultimate luxury experience. Beond will operate a fleet of state-of-the-art Airbus A320-family aircraft, all configured for a unique lay-flat luxury experience.

Passengers traveling to the Maldives from Europe, the Middle East, and the Asia-Pacific region will find themselves in a realm of unparalleled comfort and style.

Beond the Horizon

The first Beond aircraft, which was unveiled during the event, will be on display at the Dubai Air Show in mid-November, providing aviation enthusiasts and travelers with a closer look at the airline’s commitment to luxury and quality.

Additionally, more Airbus aircraft will join the Beond fleet in late 2023 and early 2024, expanding the airline’s reach and enhancing the travel experience for its customers.

In addition to its inaugural flights, Beond Airlines also announced the introduction of new routes starting in late March 2024, with Milan and Dubai as the focal points.

These new routes will open up exciting opportunities for travelers, ensuring that Beond Airlines remains at the forefront of providing extraordinary travel experiences.
