Sri Lanka

Region: Asia: South Asia


The aviation sector in Sri Lanka is set for expansion after the cessation of the country’s long-running civil war. Foreign investment in the economy and inbound tourism had been seriously undermined by a lack of confidence in Sri Lanka’s security situation. However, the now-prevailing peace will provide a solid foundation for confidence both abroad and at home, for tourists and businesses alike. Sri Lankan Airlines, the government owned flag carrier, operates services to destinations in Asia and Europe from its main base and hub at Colombo Bandaranaike International Airport – the country’s only international airport. Mihin Lanka is Sri Lanka’s LCC and is a state owned enterprise offering flights to domestic destinations and to a number of cities in India and the Gulf States.
