The newest airport in the Maldives, located in the Dhaalu Atoll, recently saw the successful completion of its first test flight. This domestic airport on Kudahuvadhoo Island in the southern part of the country is expected to have three to four daily flights initially once fully operational. Ahmed Amir (Kudahuvadhoo MP), Moosa Zameer (Tourism Minister) and Ahmed Nihan (Majority Leader) were among the dignitaries who were passengers on this flight along with Abdul Haris (Island Aviation Managing Director) and senior officials from the country’s civil aviation authority.
