Beond, a luxury airline startup based in the Maldives, officially announced the commencement of its commercial operations, marking a significant milestone in the world of high-end travel. The airline is all set to take flight with its inaugural trips slated to begin next month.
Luxury Airline Beond Flights
Beond is taking off in style, with its first aircraft, an Airbus A319, specially designed for an exclusive clientele. This elegant airplane offers a lavish and comfortable experience, accommodating 44 passengers in an all lay-flat configuration.
The grand reveal of this remarkable aircraft took place at the Al Maktoum International Airport in Dubai World Central.
The airline’s debut flights are planned to connect travellers to Riyadh, Munich, and Zurich, creating a remarkable experience from November 9 to 17. What sets Beond apart is its exclusive focus on all-business-class flights, ensuring a journey filled with luxury and comfort.
New Routes and Growing Fleet
As Beond takes its first steps into the aviation world, it doesn’t plan to stop anytime soon. The company has unveiled plans for additional routes starting from Milan in late March 2024. Over the next five years, Beond envisions expanding its operations significantly, with a fleet of 32 aircraft and services spanning 60 different destinations.
Beond’s fleet will primarily consist of Airbus A320-family aircraft, all featuring the highly sought-after lay-flat configuration. This will allow Beond to connect passengers from Europe, the Middle East, and the Asia-Pacific region to the breathtaking beauty of the Maldives.
The public will have a chance to witness the airline’s first aircraft at the upcoming Dubai Air Show in mid-November. Additional Airbus aircraft will be joining the Beond fleet in the near future, with plans for deployment in late 2023 and early 2024.
For those seeking an unparalleled travel experience, Beond offers one-way airfares starting at 1,500 euros (approximately Dhs6,000) per person, contingent upon the chosen departure point. Tero Taskila, the founder and CEO of Beond, stated, “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.”
Sascha Feuerherd, Chief Commercial Officer of Beond, echoed the sentiment by saying, “The response by customers and stakeholders has been excellent in our launch cities—which was to be expected. And now the interest has grown from other new origins on our route map. I look forward to greeting our first passengers as they board.”
Beond is poised to redefine luxury air travel, offering passengers the opportunity to embark on unforgettable journeys to the Maldives and beyond in a manner that is both lavish and unforgettable.
The airline’s commitment to excellence and its dedication to providing an extraordinary travel experience sets it apart as a beacon of luxury in the aviation industry.
