Majority of them are migrant workers who had lost jobs due to COVID-19.

    The elite Sri Lankan had the priority and the maids are last which contributed to the economy tremendously. Sad.

    Pls allow the commercial flights to come to BIA. There are many people who want to come back to Sri Lanka. Give priority plan to bring our citizens back.

    These Sri Lankan pregnant women and some with their children who are stranded in the Middle East should have been given top priority to return to Sri Lanka than everybody else. They have contributed billions of rupees to the Sri Lankan economy since the 80's and helped to boost the economy which was on the verge of total collapse.
