Reuniting our fellow Maldivians with their families in these unprecedented times has been a great motivation for us at Ace Travels Maldives. We also feel content to have been able to transport several students who were in Malé awaiting to return to Kuala Lumpur to continue pursuing their higher education. We look forward operating more flights working together with our partner airlines on this shared objective in the future as well.”
