Beond is a start-up airline that was founded at the beginning of 2022 and officially commenced operations in September 2023. The airline is still in its start-up phase and is planning to fly directly from the Maldives to over 60 destinations across the globe including Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia.

Beond is the first airline to launch a luxury airline in the Maldives - the airline offers business class only. The airline aims to provide luxurious passenger flights around the world as well as provide more direct flights to/from the Maldives, making it easier for tourists to visit.
Beond is looking to fly to over 60 destinations globally from the Maldives. Beond will begin its operations in Dubai, Hong Kong, Milan, Munich, Paris, Riyadh, Singapore, Taipei, Vienna, and Zurich. The airline will continue to expand its destinations later on.

BeOnd Airlines business-class cabin is set out in a 2-2 seating configuration. The seats are designed by Optimares, a company that specialises in manufacturing stylish, luxurious seats for airlines offering business-class cabins.
Although the airline offers a luxury travel experience, it doesn't provide seatback screens on its seats - this is to cut costs and achieve sustainability on all its flights. Beond's premium seats convert into fully flat beds.
Beond will offer online check-in for you to complete at home before your flight departure time. Many airlines allow you to check in from 30 days to 24 hours before your flight. More information on online check-in will be available as soon as Beond begins its operations.
Beond has announced its airport check-in times, however, we advise that you arrive at least 2 hours before your flight departure time. Please note that check-in times will be shown on your flight itinerary.
Unfortunately, there are no seatback screens provided on the seats in Beond's cabin. We recommend bringing your own forms of entertainment for your flight, such as a book to read or your favourite movies/TV shows downloaded onto your personal electronic devices.
Beond will offer luxury Michelin-star treats! It promises to serve excellent quality and healthy sourced food from around the world.
