Island Aviation Services Limited will be commencing flights on 27th March 2022 from Velana International Airport, Maldives to Colombo International Airport (Ratmalana), Sri Lanka. Scheduled flights are now open for booking with the price of fare ticket with return going up to USD 299..
Maldivian has scheduled flights on 27th, 29th, 31st of March, and 03rd April. The carrier plans to continue flights and increase flight numbers.
A number of Maldivians reside in the Ratmalana area. Ratmalana Airport is also the closest airport to the Maldives. Hence the travel duration is expected to decrease. With ambitious goals, Ratmalana International Airport has major plans to attract international airlines, commercial and corporate flights as well as private jet operations to the airport.
Ratmalana International Airport is a primarily domestic airport serving the city of Colombo, the capital of Sri Lanka. It was the country’s first international airport and was the only international airport in Sri Lanka until the inauguration of Bandaranaike International Airport, Katunayake in 1967. The airport currently serves several domestic services and is home to several aviation training organizations. A relaxation of rules has recently seen the airport open for international corporate jet operations and charter flights.
