Cathay to resume flights to Sri Lanka April 22
Cathay Pacific Airways said it will resume daily flights to and from Colombo, the capital city of Sri Lanka, on April 22.
The airline suspended its flight operations to and from Colombo following the closure of the airport on March 26, when a terrorist group attacked a Sri Lankan military base by air. The airline said it acted out of concern for the safety of its passengers and crew.
“Safety is always our top priority,' said Tony Tyler, Cathay Pacific chief operating officer, in a statement. 'Cathay Pacific remains committed to Sri Lanka and now that enhanced security measures are being put in place we are happy to be able to resume flights to the country.'
