<!-- Deleted image removed: -->Trans Maldivian Airways is a private airline based in Malé International Airport and is the oldest air transfer operator operating in the Maldives. They operate seaplanes to resort islands.
Originally Hummingbird Island Helicopters (established in 1989) and renamed Hummingbird Island Airways in July 1997, it began operations with a fleet of helicopters. In January 2000 Hummingbird Island Airways was renamed Trans Maldivian Airways. The first seaplanes were introduced in 1997 and from 1999 to 2007 Trans Maldivian Airways operated a fleet entirely made up of seaplanes. In August 2007 it started operating domestic flights to Gan with an ATR 42.
Due to financial reasons Trans Maldivian ceased flight operations to the 4 domestic airports on 1 March 2009.
