Flydubai ceases operations at MRIA

8 June 2018 12:37 pm - 10     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Flydubai, the only international airline operated at the Mattala Rajapaksa International Airport (MRIA), has ceased its operations at the airport citing ‘uneconomical’ outcomes.

CAA Chairman Ananda Wimalasena told Daily Mirror that the airline had made the request two weeks ago.

“They said their operations at MRIA are uneconomical and also complained about one or two bird strikes,” he said.

    What a stupid idea to have an airport in the jungle! These are subjects really to be debated with those responsible not only bond scam.

    Yes. All are talking only on bond scam and forgotten others...all the culprits should go to jail (not to paid hospitals) and sentence till death... Just see how many millions of public money they waste to build their boru sobana
