The charter flight from Denmark landed in Gan International Airport today at 14:45, resuming operations after last year’s holiday season. A warm welcome including a traditional Bodu Beru performance was given to the 159 tourists who will be staying at Canareef Resort. These flights are operated in partnership by the Danish tour operator Primo Tours, Splendid Asia and Canareef Resort Maldives. Originating from the cities of Billund and Copenhagen these charter flights are expected to operate twice weekly until the end of April next year. This is the first international flight that arrived in Gan since the new runway extension work started. Once completed in March 2016 the new runway will be 3400 meters. Seaplane operations are also expected to commence next year which will help boost regional tourism.
