Sri Lanka will resume its international flights from December 26.

The island country had closed its borders for a period of eight months following the advent of the pandemic. Restrictions gradually started to be lifted mid-May.

The Civil Aviation Authority of Sri Lanka (CAASL) has announced that it would be issuing directives for the travel industry regarding the opening of Sri Lanka’s airspace for charter flights and commercial flights operations.

Sri Lanka also plans to open up to foreign tourists soon, with all safety measures in place.
