A Blue Panorama flight made history as it became the first international flight to land at Gan Airport in Addu – the southernmost atoll of the Maldives. Gan Airport has long been a busy regional airport in the country, but this is the first time it has played host to an international flight.
Seventy one tourists travelling from Milan to Addu’s newly opened resort island of Herathera received a heart-warming welcome from the locals at Gan International Airport. The landing of this Blue Panorama flight in Addu marks the inauguration of Gan airport as the country’s second international airport. Thus far Malé International Airport at Hulhule Island has been the only international airport in the country.
