Velana International Airport Development Plan

Velana International Airport, the island airport which served 4.4 million passengers in 2017, has embarked on the largest development project in the history of the Maldives. The developments will include a new international passenger terminal building designed to cater for over 7.5 million passengers annually and a code-F runway which can now accommodate the airbus A380, the largest passenger aircraft in operation today. The airport will also open a cargo terminal complex with a capacity to handle 120,000 tons of air cargo annually and a fuel farm with capacity to hold 45,000 cubic meters of Jet A1 fuel plus a state-of-the-art fuel hydrant system. Furthermore, the airport will welcome a new seaplane terminal with 63 docks, which can be expanded up to 80, and a VIP/CIP terminal with passenger screening, baggage screening, baggage handling services and dedicated lounges, boarding gates and airline check-in counters. This transformation will increase the passenger handling capacity and improve operational efficiency of the airport, enabling it to accommodate increased passenger traffic.
