Economics and Connectivity

The Maldives airports are undergoing a major business transformation over the recent history – from typical transport infrastructure providers to full-fledged businesses, competing for business and traffic in developing industries like transportation, fisheries and tourism. Today, airport operators like Maldives Airports Company and Addu International Airport Pvt Ltd are corporatized businesses – inviting involvement of the growing private sector.

As such Addu International Airport has recently signed an agreement with Trans Maldivian Airways (TMA) one of the largest seaplane operators in the world to provide connectivity between Gan International Airport and the southern region of Maldives.

Airports are also one of the most important economic actors in the Maldives since they began operations. Their economic impact is widespread – airports employ a multitude of staff directly, support many on-site jobs and facilitate the development of tourism and many other economic activities in the region.

Gan International Airport is now capable of handling wide-bodied aircraft direct from International origin. At a national level this has the economic advantage of being an alternate gateway to the Maldives, effectively supporting population consolidation in the region – building better communities giving a relief to the population congestion at Male region.

Based on the connectivity and available resources in the region, what can be achieved utilizing Gan International Airport is enormous and is simply a matter of tapping the potential that we know exists.
