The Sri Lanka Air Force has now commenced domestic flight services to any destination departing from Katunayaka and Ratmalana. The general public can now seek any air route to any interested local destination. The new service is also available from Katunayaka International Air Port enabling passengers arriving at the airport to take an air route to the domestic destination.


The domestic airline service operation was shut down due to the terrorist threats and, with the successful annihilation of the LTTE terrorists the SLAF has taken immediate steps to extend their services with the objective of providing a speedy transportation service to the public.

The service operated under ‘Helitours’ will utilize both Air Crafts and Helicopters for intended tours. The airfares will be US$70 upwards.
