Maldivian to operate two more airports across country

Maldivian Airline - the island nation's national airline - has confirmed they are set to operate two additional airports across the country.

Speaking to Public Service Media (PSM) the company's Director of Flight Operations Captain Mohamed Ameen confirmed Maldivian is set to operate two of the new airports that will be completed in the near future.

Ameen added that the state government will come forward with an official announcement soon.

While Maldivian is set to take two new responsibilities at the venues the company is currently handling the operations of four existing airports including their highest operational venues at Baa atoll Dharavandhoo and Gaaf Ali Kooddoo.

The significantly high air-traffic to these locations is contributed by the large number of resorts operating in these areas.

Maldivian has regular flights to six destinations of China as well as India, Bangladesh and Thailand.
