In a ceremony held on 12th February, the Director General of Regional Airports, Saamy Ageel, and CEO of MTCC, Ibrahim Ziyath, signed the $3.3 million agreement.

Under the contract, set to be completed within 160 days, the company will develop a 1.2 kilometer runway.

The land required to develop the airport was also created by MTCC. This work was done using the company’s new trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD) Mahaa Jarraafu.

According to the Maldives Government, the airport will be completed by August 2018, and flights will start operating immediately.
