We introduce a family of algebraic curves over 𝔽q2n (for an odd n) and show that they are maximal. When n = 3, our curve coincides with the 𝔽q6-maximal curve that has been found by Giulietti and Korchmáros recently. Their curve (i.e., the case n = 3) is the first example of a maximal curve proven not to be covered by the Hermitian curve.
