Male’ International Airport
|Ibrahim Nasir International Airport (IATA: MLE, ICAO: VRMM), more commonly known as Malé International Airport, previously known as Hulhulé Airport, is the main international airport in the Maldives. It is located on Hulhulé Island in the North Malé Atoll, nearby the capital island Malé.The airport opened to the public on 12 April 1966. Later, the airport underwent renovation and upgrading to international standard, inaugurating its new name on 11 November 1981. It was managed financially and administratively by an independent corporate entity known as Maldives Airports Company Limited (MACL), which is governed by a Board of Directors appointed by the President. In early 2010, the government began considering privatising the airport in order to develop it further. On 15 July 2010, the airport was privatised following a concession agreement between GMR Group, India and Malaysia Airports Berhad (MAHB). On 25 November 2010, MACL officially handed over the aerodrome license of the then Malé International Airport to the newly formed GMR Male International Airport Pvt. Ltd. (GMIAL).
On 26 July 2011, Male’ International Airport was officially renamed as ‘Ibrahim Nasir International Airport’ in memory of the late Ibrahim Nasir, 2nd President of the Maldives. He is known for initiating the airport in 1960.
