Sri Lanka has reopened to fully vaccinated travellers from India.

With travel restrictions being eased, SriLankan Airlines has announced regular flights from nine cities across India.

The flag carrier of Sri Lanka will operate four weekly flights to Chennai, three to Mumbai, and one to Bengaluru and is expected to introduce significant frequency enhancements.

Under the new schedules, the airline will also be resuming services between Colombo and the Indian points; Madurai, Tiruchirappalli, Thiruvananthapuram and Cochin with flights once a week.

The airline will connect Hyderabad and New Delhi with Colombo with twice-weekly flights. The airline’s operations out of Chennai and Mumbai will expand up to five times a week and the Bengaluru-Colombo flight services will be increased to three times a week.

Kimarli Fernando, chairperson, Sri Lanka Tourism said:

“We look forward to welcoming our closest neighbours yet again, so they may experience the variety that Sri Lanka has to offer.

“Our country’s heritage, culture, wildlife, nature, beaches and more have always proven to be popular among Indian travellers, and they will be able to visit destinations across the country while following the relevant health guidelines.”
