New Cargo Terminal Inauguration in the Maldives

President and government officials inaugurating the new cargo terminal
The president of the Maldives, Dr Mohamed Muizzu officially inaugurated the new cargo terminal at the Velana International Airport on 15th January 2023.

This new cargo terminal addition is part of the development project, as Velana International Airport is trying to cater to the growing tourism industry in the Maldives and to cater to the increased number of arrivals each year. 

With this new development, the cargo terminal now has more capacity, servicing three times more cargo compared to the previous facility. Additionally, the capacity of the new terminal will also increase to a total of 120,000 tonnes of cargo services per year. This is a big step up from the 50,000 tonnes that the previous terminal was able to service.

In addition to equipping environmentally friendly vehicles with updated amenities, the new cargo terminal also includes a three-story office building with 55 office spaces for airlines and brokers. 

Velana International Airport, which is the connecting port for travellers from all around the globe to the beautiful destination of the Maldives has been going through major upgrades in recent years. Recently, the President has also announced a development megaproject which will see the expansion of the airport to accommodate 25 million tourists annually!
