Minister: Domestic Airports To Be Set Up

Dec 27, 2010 7:34:15 AM - thesundayleader.lk

The Civil Aviation Minister Priyankara Jayaratne has said that seven domestic airports are to be set up in the country.

He has said that a domestic airport would be developed in Puttalam and six other domestic airports are to be developed in other parts of the country and this number would be increased to 30 in the future.

The Minister has said that domestic air services to the Puttalam area would be developed when Puttalam is declared as a tourist zone.

Jayaratne has made these observations at a discussion at the Puttalam district secretariat that while seaplane services would be introduced in Puttalam, the first seaplane would land in the Puttalam Lagoon in February 2011.
