Accessibility to resorts in the Maldives’ Lhaviyani Atoll can be considerably improved with the opening of Madivaru Airport in early February. Flights to and from Male’s Velana International Airport to Madivaru Airport will take simply 25 minutes and function all through the night time.
Until now Lhaviyani has been serviced solely by seaplanes, the place operation is restricted to sunlight in addition to flying from a special terminal at Velana. The flight schedule will start with three flights per day, scheduled in response to arrivals and departures of worldwide flights to make sure minimal wait instances for travellers.
Madivaru Airport has been developed by Kuredu Holdings and can be managed by the nationwide airline Maldivian, following a administration settlement signed by Mohamed Moosa, chairman of Champa Brothers Maldives and co-owner of Crown & Champa Resorts.
The venture contains land reclamation from Madivaru’s lagoon, development of a 1,200-metre runway and a passenger terminal.
