Malé International Airport (MLE)
Malé International Airport is located on the island named "Hulhule”.
In April 1996 Male International Airport was opened and named as "Hulhule Airport". With time the airport’s name was changed into "Ibrahim Nasir International Airport" in honour of the 2nd president "Ibrahim Nasir". In November 1981 the airport's name was changed into Male International Airport by a president Mr. Maumoom Abdul Gayyoom.
There are more than 100 airlines operating at Malé International Airport, e.g. Aeroflot, Air India, Austrian Airlines, British Airways, China Eastern Airlines, Etihad Airways, Flyme, Maldivian, Mega Maldives, SriLankan Airlines, Turkish Airlines and Trans Maldivian Airways.
Airport has one terminal divided into three lounges two of them used for national & international flights and one of them used for cargo operations. Airport is facilitated with prayer area, duty-free shops, liquor & tobacco shop, public telephone booths, shopping arcade, souvenirs, confectionery and some fast food restaurants.
Unfortunately, neither train line bus nor taxi system is nearby to the airport so ferry services and domestic airlines are the most convenient means of traveling to and from the airport.
