The Sri Lankan Air Taxi Service now operates to Nuwara Eliya, providing an exciting of traveling to beat the heat in Colombo and take part in the annual festivities which will bring “Little England” alive.
The first sea plane carrying a group of tourists landed on the calm waters of Lake Gregory. This follows the success of the trails conducted so far. The tourists who embarked from Peliyagoda reached Nuwara Eliya in half an hour. There were 15 tourists in the first group.
Lake Gregory has been specially cleared to provide an ideal water-drome for the twin engined aircraft, and there is a special dock, for the convenience of passengers, with excellent ground facilities at the point of landing. The aircraft flies slowly enough for the passengers to experience the most breathtaking views and fast enough to ensure that they arrive in Nuwara Eliya as fresh as when they left home.
