The worldwide ground support division of Universal Weather and Aviation has announced that its newest location, Universal Aviation Maldives, will begin operations by the end of November 2018.
Universal Aviation Maldives is headquartered at Velana International Airport (VRMM) and is a joint venture location with Inner Maldives Holidays, a multi-award winning travel company
providing tourism and travel services to the booming tourism industry in the Maldives since
1998. The Maldives will become Universal Aviation’s eighth location in the Asia-Pacific region.
Greg Evans, the Chairman of Universal said “The Maldives are a popular but potentially challenging destination for our clients, so it was important for us to identify a partner in Inner Maldives that will not only reduce our customers' risk and stress on the ground but provide them with an unforgettable experience through proactive trip management, versus relying solely on third-parties,”

Universal Aviation Maldives main operation is located at the island of Malé, but the location also
provides supervisory services at all airports throughout the Maldives - including Gan International Airport (VRMG), Maamigili Airport (VRMV) and Hanimaadhoo International
“Tourism is a major reason for much of the corporate jet aviation traffic to the Maldives,” said
Abdulla Ghiyas, Managing Director of Universal Aviation Maldives. “Our team members are
trained to Universal Aviation’s ground support standards, but are also experts in local tourism
and can help arrange discounts for crews on local hotels, air transport, and tours.”
Charlie Mularski, Senior Vice President of Universal international said “Universal Aviation Maldives will support local business aviation traffic but just as importantly will be a local advocate for the industry in the Maldives,” said “Our team will work closely with the Maldives government to identify opportunities to drive traffic, and improve infrastructure and access while also benefiting the local economy.”
