Maldives’state-run MACL on Friday took over the operations of the Male international airport from GMR after the Indian infrastructure major lost a week-long legal battle over the “unilateral” termination of its USD 511 million airport modernisation contract.

“Maldives Airport Company Limited has taken over the operations of the Ibrahim Nassir International Airport from GMR.

The transfer process was very smooth and seamless,” President Mohamed Waheed’s Press Secretary Masood Imad said. He said that there would be three-week transition period during which GMR and state-run MACL will work together.

“GMR has agreed to work with MACL for the next three weeks or so to help MACL with paperworks and to clear any doubts since the Indian firm was operating the airport for last two years,” Imad told PTI.

He sought to allay any fears of loss of jobs or any vendetta.
