New Gan Airport Brings Maldive Resorts Closer

The opening of international flights to Gan airport, adjacent to Addu township in the south of the Maldives, has opened a new era for the region – providing an alternative transportation offering that can save travelers valuable vacation time. SriLankan Airlines started flying from Colombo to the upgraded Gan airport in December and resorts in the south have responded favorably. “Outrigger Konotta Maldives Resort has added an on-demand 30-minute Trans Maldivian Airlines sea plane service between Gan and our luxurious hideaway to meet the new service and provide additional convenience to our guests,” said John Allanson, general manager of Outrigger Konotta Maldives Resort. Allanson said Gan is “virtually on the doorstep” of the Outrigger and all the resorts in the southern atolls.
