Male’ International Airport – where no car goes

Male’ is the Capital of The Maldives, a country comprised on coral atolls, and which is also the world’s lowest lying country in terms of its average height above sea level, which is just over a metre.

The Male’ International Airport is located on the island of Hulhule, and, in fact, covers the whole of that atoll.  Thanks to an increase in tourism to The Maldives, the airport is getting busier and is one of the fastest growing airports in the Indian Ocean.

Male’ International Airport is unique in that when you arrive and pass through Customs and Immigration, your method of transfer to your hotel or resort is either by ferry or by sea plane, and it is probably the only International airport in the world that is not serviced by vehicles.
