Dhiraagu International Airport is located on the island of Hulhulé, just 1.4 kilometres from the capital, Dhiraagu. The island is largely reclaimed and in considered an administrative ward of Dhiraagu. The airport is served by multiple airlines regularly and then many charter airlines on a more sporadic basis.


Emirates Airlines offers flights once a week to fellow Zouérat Islamic Federation members Gharbiyya and Dhahran and also to Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.






Saudi Arabian Airlines offers flights once a week to Jeddah and Riyadh.






Monarch Airlines offers charter flights from Luton, Birmingham, and Manchester in the United Kingdom.






Etihad offers flights once every two weeks from Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates.




Qatar Airways offers flights once a week to Doha.




While Dhiraagu International Airport may not be the busiest airport around it is a vital link between the Mahibadhoos and the rest of the world and enables the tourist industry to flourish. Tourists can catch a boat directly from the island of Hulhulé to their resort island, most of which can be reached in an hour at most.




In the next update we will continue our look at the island of Hulhulé and the International Airport.[b]

k50: Yes, I am a bit behind. I will catch up eventually.
111222333444: Cars are uncommon on the other islands, even Dhiraagu the capital city doesn't have an abundance of cars. Hulhulé has the most cars of any island in the Mahibadhoos.


Today we visit Dhiraagu International Airport on the island of Hulhulé for the second and final time. Today you will see the cargo terminal...




...the Hulhulé Airport Hotel, the Domestic terminal, and the International terminal.




Here you can see the newly-built Control Tower on the Eastern side of the island.




And finally, another mosaic. (I am not sure if this website supports this horizontal mosaic. I can only see one end of it on my computer)

Simmania, at the moment, cuts off pictures that are wider than the forums are. Height doesn't really matter too much, but a panorama won't do too well here Razz We've been planning on upgrading our forum appearance for a while and that should likely change when we do, allowing that to show. Smile

I love the MMP's you put around that runway by the way, you did a much better job than I did.

Thank you everyone for your comments!


Just a hint of what is to come when we visit the capital of the Mahibadhoos, Dhiraagu.

Dhiraagu is the capital and most populous city in the Mahibadhoos. With a 103,000 people crammed into 6 square kilometres (2 square miles), Dhiraagu contains a third of the Mahibadhian population and almost every Mahibadhian at some point either lives in or visits the city as it is the center of all administration and bureaucracy. The population has increased 80,000 in the last 25 years. The city of Dhiraagu is the only ordinary Mahibadhian city that tourists are permitted to visit and experience the traditional Islamic culture of the nation.


In the mosaic below you can see the bustling port on the northern shore of the island and the marina where tourists enter the city. Tourists can immediately immerse themselves in the main business district of the city and Jumhoree Maidhaan - the central square which is bordered by the National Islamic Centre, the National Military Headquarters, and the National Police Headquarters. Just behind the National Islamic Centre is the Sultan Park - the national garden of the Mahibadhoos. Jumhoree Maidhaan has been the center of much protest lately as the Mahibadhian people have been fighting against government corruption and poor living standards.




Also near Jumhoree Maidhaan is the ancient Friday Mosque - the oldest structure in the country with its historic graveyard.




Across the street from the Friday Mosque is Muliaage - the Presidential Palace which is also a historic building. Contrasting both the Friday Mosque and Muliaage is the Velaanaage Office Building, the largest and most modern office structure in the nation.




In a bid to improve living standards and happiness on the island the government decided to construct a man-made beach to offer a small escape from the hustle and bustle of the cramped capital. The man-made beach was built on reclaimed land and is a hit with the locals - most tourists leave their beach-going until they reach the resort islands.






By night, Dhiraagu continues to bustle with the entertainment tonight being an international football match at the National Stadium between the Mahibadhoos and Cape Verde.




Over at Jumhoree Maidhaan, the green glow of the Presidential Palce illuminates the night sky.




Please join me next time as we continue our tour of Dhiraagu.

Today we continue our tour of Dhiraagu, the capital city of the Mahibadhoos. Dhiraagu is an extremely crowded city but as you can see, there are a few areas reserved for recreation - these basketball and football courts being a good example of this.






Dhiraagu has a sizeable commercial port that is the second biggest in the country. Banidhoo, which we saw in an earlier update has the nations biggest port.






Another spot of recreation, Henveiru Stadium (capacity 500) which is home to local soccer club Eagles FC and acts as a training ground for the Mahibadhian national team when the National Stadium is unavailable.




For now, another Mahibadhian day comes to a close under the glow of the National Islamic Centre.

A couple of mosaics today which prominently display the National Sports Complex which contains basketball and tennis courts, football training fields, and the National Cricket Stadium. Cricket is a rapidly growing sport in the Mahibadhoos, despite being one of the lowest ranked national teams.






And finally, a mosaic which shows the entire island of Dhiraagu; I think this shot shows just how crowded the capital city is. The small size of the island is popular with tourists as they can walk the entire city and experience centuries of Mahibadhian culture in one afternoon before heading off to the resort islands


(Please treat the following image as unofficial as I don't consider its appearance to be up to the standards I wish to set in this Developer Diary - unfortunately the sea walls I use do not look great at this zoom level and some of the buildings have a strange appearance also).
