British Airways has confirmed it will stop flights to Sri Lanka in March, just two years after resuming a service to the country.

Foreign media reported that its final flight from Heathrow to Colombo will depart on March 28, and that from that date the airline will also only offer Winter flights to Maldives.

A spokesman from British Airways apologised for any inconvenience caused to customers and confirmed that anyone affected would receive a full refund.

He said that the decision was arrived at because the Colombo route was not making a profitable contribution to the business and thus they were unable to sustain it.

Once they end their flights, just one carrier- Sri Lankan Airlines- will offer a direct service to the UK.
