Indian full-service carrier Vistara on Monday announced that it has suspended all its flights to Sri Lanka until further notice with effect from May 6.

The announcement comes after Sri Lanka declared a nationwide curfew and deployed Army troops in the capital.

It’s worth mentioning that Sri Lankan Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa resigned earlier today, just hours after his supporters beat anti-government protestors outside embattled President Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s office, injuring at least 78 people. At least two Cabinet ministers have also resigned.

Earlier, the airline used to operate a twice-weekly direct service between Delhi and Colombo.
