IDC continues to invest in key infrastructure on the islands under its management.
Further to receiving Environmental and Planning Authority approval, work has started to construct an airstrip on Grand Ile - Cosmoledo Atoll.
A much needed infrastructure to ensure the safety and well being of the islanders. The possibility of having flights to the island will also increase significantly the air surveillance possibility of the atoll.
Thus far, access to the atoll included an air transfer to Astove and sea crossing to Cosmoledo. A risky and challenging affair especially during the south east monsoon.
