A Sri Lankan passenger who arrived at the Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA) from Saudi Arabia, was found dead at the airport this morning.

Airport officials suspect that the 49-year-old Abdul Wahid, a resident at Teldeniya in Kandy might have died due to sudden cardiac arrest.

It was reported that the victim who was residing at Jeddah in Saudi Arabia arrived in the country early this morning to take his wife to Jeddah.

The Katunayaje Police is investigating. (T.K.G. Kapila)

    NOT ONLY THE AIRPORT EVEN SRI LANKA AIRLINES TREAT SRI LANKAN PASSENGERS WITHOUT ANY RESPECT. NOWADAYS OFTEN OFFLOADED OR FLIGHT CHANGED AT THE WILL OF THE AIRLINE WITHOUT ANY PAYMENT. BUT. IF A PASSENGER WANTS A DATE CHANGED HE HAS TO FIRST PAY THE FEES BEFORE HE CAN RE-BOOK TO ANOTHER FLIGHT
