The Maldives' largest international airport is largely built on an artificial peninsula, as there is not a single island in the entire Maldives that can accommodate a runway.

The Velana Airport terminal is located on the island of Hulhulé and is 4 km from the capital Malé.

The airport is well connected to the global network through many Asian and European airlines. Most services are to the Middle East, especially Dubai, and also to India and Sri Lanka.

The Maldives also has numerous connections to major European cities and South East Asia.
