Maldives Transport and Contracting Company (MTCC) has kick started the land reclamation works required for the development of Meemu Airport. Joined by the CEO of MTCC, Adam Azim, a small ceremony was held today on the island of Muli, Meemu Atoll to mark the beginning of this operation.  

The project worth MVR 221.733 million (USD 14.3 million) is contracted to be completed in one year’s time. The airport is under development as part of the current administration’s pledge to have an airport within a thirty-five-minute distance from each island of the Maldives. 

The scope of the project work includes land reclamation of 14 hectares, implementation of coastal protection over 1,812m and the construction of a runway measuring up to 1200m x 30m. 

Currently, there are three international airports and fourteen domestic airports in operation across the Maldives.  

The Meemu Airport development project was awarded to MTCC on February 28, 2021.
