Transformation projects in the Maldives

A380 here we come!

Dec 23, 2017


Two major developments in the Maldives tourist sector are currently being constructed and they sound very exciting indeed! 

The Velana Airport (Male) is looking forward to adding a new terminal and runway to its layout. The terminal will most likely be completed in 2020 while the runway will already be open in mid-2018 to welcome planes such as the large Airbus A380.

Besides the planned explansion of the Velana International Airport, the Friendship Bridge (scheduled to be completed in July 2018), is another big project regarding Maldives recent tourism developments.

It will bridge the destination between Male in the East to Hulhuleal in the West, thereby, build a very important land connection between the airport and the capital.


Sounds like the Maldives should be on all of our bucket lists for the future!
