Civil court rejects opposition case against airport development fee

The Civil Court has rejected a lawsuit filed today by the opposition coalition against the planned US$25 airport development fee to be charged by Indian infrastructure giant GMR, which recently won the bid to redevelop Male’ International Airport.

The coalition argue that any new tax must be approved by parliament, as per the constitution. However the Civil court dismissed the lawsuit noting that the plan had not yet been implemented.

  1. Why not a 25 USD fee? That happens elsewhere in similar airports. What makes a total non sense is the 27% margin on fuel, this will prohibit any long haul direct route to Europe and kill the fuel business at the airport? With no flight from Europe, Maldives will not be able to compete anymore with other island paradises... Indians won't care
