To enhance services and accommodate the growing number of passengers, Kulhudhuffushi Airport, The Regional Airports Company Limited (RACL), responsible for the airport’s operations, has called upon interested companies to submit their Expression of Interest (EOI) for the expansion and redevelopment of the terminal.
Key aspects of the project include the development of an 11,345-square-foot passenger terminal, improvements to the existing structure, shading in the passenger terminal area, and the establishment of additional facilities to enhance passenger services.
According to Ahmed Mubeen, the Managing Director of RACL, identifying necessary changes to the airport has been a top priority since assuming control of the company. The initiative aligns with the broader vision outlined in President Dr. Mohamed Muizzu’s “Week 14” roadmap.
Interested construction companies have until January 9 to submit their EOIs, with bid documents set to be issued exclusively to registered bidders. The move comes as part of RACL’s commitment to ensuring a competitive and transparent selection process for the project.
RACL and the Kulhudhuffushi Council have inked an agreement to develop the vacant land north of the airport, including the adjacent Mangrove forest, aiming to create a more comprehensive and modern airport infrastructure.
As of now, RACL oversees the operations of a total of seven airports in the Maldives. The expansion project at Kulhudhuffushi Airport represents a significant step forward in the continual improvement of air travel facilities within the region.
