The Civil Aviation Authority of Sri Lanka on Thursday announced that the country is going to resume international flights from 0000 hrs. on 01st June 2021. However, the aviation authority has still put some restrictions on incoming international flights.
“We are working with Airport and Aviation Services to resume our scheduled commercial flights by the first of June,” said Ashok Pathirage Chairman of SriLankan Airlines.
SriLankan Airlines has stopped scheduled flights as airports closed and travel restrictions came in.
Sri Lanka Travel Restrictions
As per the media release issued by CAASL, all incoming passengers and flights arriving at Sri Lanka’s International Airport have to comply with the following restrictions until further notice;
- Each incoming flight can carry only a maximum of 75 passengers in total.
- Any passenger with a travel history to India (including transit) in the past 14 days will not be permitted to arrive.
- All arriving passengers will be subject to a 14 day quarantine period as per instructions of the Health Authorities.
Flight Suspension From India
In a view to controlling the Covid-I9 situation in the country, the Civil Aviation Authority of Sri Lanka on 21st May suspends all inbound international flights for 10 days.
It must be noted that due to a huge surge in Covid-19 cases in India, Sri Lanka has suspended all flights to/from India on 06th May 2021.
Also, the latest media release doesn’t say anything about the resumption of international flights from India, so it is very much clear that Sri Lanka will further extend the suspension of flights from India.
