Well, talking about the international airports in Maldives, Malé International Airport that lies on the Hulhulé Island in the North Malé Atoll near Male is the main international airport. It has been playing a significant role in the tourism in Maldives.

The charge for administering and managing it financially is done by a private corporate entity known as Maldives Airports Company Limited. The board of directors appointed by the president govern it. The airport is well equipped and consists of a bank, pharmacy, duty free shops, bureau de change, restaurant and post office. It also makes provision for first aid facilities. The best part is that this airport also provides seaplane transfer service to islands.
