Sri Lankan aviation: A review of 2009 and outlook for 2010

Premium Analysis

Sri Lanka's aviation industry has suffered on several fronts in recent years, with its hub role to India diminished by that country's liberalisation of airline market access with its key trading partners, coupled with a major downturn in international tourism. Major policy and strategic changes in the aviation sector are now occurring, spearheaded by the impending full renationalisation of SriLankan Airlines, and development of a second international airport. Both these developments reflect Sri Lankan aviation's streamlined future role: supporting the national tourism industry, which has improved prospects thanks to the cessation of the long-running civil war in mid-2009.
