With the arrival of the specially modified Cessna 208 at Dhaalu Airport earlier in the week – customized especially for sky diving – it marks one of the first steps which would be undertaken to establish permanent skydiving drop zones in the Maldives. The “Jump in Maldives” program would be dedicated towards skydive lovers and extreme adventure enthusiasts to provide an even unique experience to look forward to in the Maldives.

The first drop zone to be setup will be in Dhaalu Atoll with more drop zones and more events to be established around the Maldives in the coming months.
