As of June 2019, it is one of three international airports in the Maldives. First built by the Royal Navy, and transferred to the Royal Air Force as RAF Gan, it was a military airbase used during World War II and until 1976. The first aircraft landed on the coral runway of Gan on 8th February 1943.
