Flyme, the domestic airline operated by Villa Air, has announced plans to temporarily suspend its operations in Fuvahmulah City and Addu City.
In a statement last Friday, Flyme announced it will be temporarily suspending its operations in the two destinations starting from June 10.
The private domestic airline had resumed its operations in Fuvahmulah City and Addu City following a three-year shutdown on November 15, 2018.
Flyme reports it is currently facing a shortage of pilots leading to its decision to suspend operations in Fuvahmulah City and Addu City until its current batch of pilot-trainees complete their training and report to duty.
The airline reports it expects to be able to resume operations in Fuvahmulah City and Addu City “within the next two to three months”.
Flyme reports it also has plans to expand its operations to additional destinations, and plans to purchase an ATR 72-600 aircraft to add to its fleet.
Flyme is widely popular among passengers who travel to Fuvahmulah City and Addu City.
The airline will have only two destinations - Maamingili and Dharavandhoo – once it suspends operations in Fuvahmulah City and Addu City.
