BIA, Mattala landing fee concession extended till July 19

Cabinet has given its consent to the proposal made by Tourism Minister Prasanna Ranatunga to extend concessions granted to the Mattala Rajapaksa International Airport and Colombo International Airport to attract airlines until July 19 this year.

Co-Cabinet Spokesman Energy Minister Udaya Gammanpila said Cabinet approval was granted in December last year to release the landing charges and aircraft parking charges of Mattala Airport and Colombo International Airport as an encouragement for International Air Charter Operations implemented according to specific schedules prepared by the Tourism Ministry and the Sri Lankan Civil Aviation Authority.

The Minister was addressing the weekly Cabinet media briefing held yesterday at the Government Information Department.
