(COLOMBO, LANKAPUVATH) – Sri Lanka’s national carrier, SriLankan Airlines is preparing to resume scheduled flights by June 1, Chairman Ashok Pathirage says.
“We are working with the airport and aviation services to resume our scheduled flights by June 1,” Pathirage said in an online forum organized by the National Chamber of Commerce of Sri Lanka.
He said the airline is ready but it is up to the government and health authorities to decide when to recommence the service on a regular schedule.
SriLankan canceled scheduled flights as international airports closed due to Coronavirus threat and imposed restrictions.
Pathirage said the airport would be gradually opened. India had granted permission to resume domestic flights.
