COLOMBO (News1st): Commercial and cargo flights will be allowed to operate to Sri Lanka without a restricted schedule from December 26, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has said.

The restrictions on flights imposed on flights entering the country due to COVID-19 will be lifted to recommence international flight operations, CAA chairman Upul Dharmadasa noted.

He added that four airports will be kept open in the country as part of this move.

Accordingly, commercial flights and aircraft operating without a fixed schedule will be allowed to land at the Katunayake, Mattala, Jaffna and Batticaloa airports.

Officials said that the health guidelines required to be followed upon the resumption of airline operations will be issued in near future.
