COLOMBO (News 1st): A group of 182 tourists from Ukraine will arrive in Sri Lanka on Monday evening (Dec. 28), as the first batch of tourists to visit the country since the closure of airports, in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) said.

The group will be quarantined after PCR tests, Upul Dharmadasa, the Chairman of the Civil Aviation Authority said.

According to Dharmadasa, the flight from Ukraine will land at the Mattala International Airport, on Monday (28).

The re-opening of the airport for commercial passenger flights was postponed indefinitely, following the discovery of more contagious strains of the virus in several foreign states.

Earlier, a group of tourists from Russia was scheduled to arrive as the first batch of tourists under the pilot project of tourism revival post-COVID-19; however, they abandoned the tour.
