MACL opens up VIA’s East apron due to the surge in air traffic

There has been a steady rise in private air travel to the Maldives every subsequent holiday season.

This year with regards to high air traffic, MACL has unofficially opened VIA’s new 50,000 sqm east apron to accommodate the increasing number of private jets in need of parking.

Primarily, the festive period for the Maldivian tourism market is marked from mid-December to early April with key dates as Christmas, New Year’s Eve, Russian Orthodox, Valentines and Easter Holidays.

The new seaplane terminal is also close to the end of its completion and is set to open in May 2020.
