Newly constructed Iranamadu Domestic Airport was declared open by President Mahinda Rajapaksa a short while ago.

The Iranamdu Air strip which was completely destroyed by the LTTE was restored by air force personnel using their own engineering expertise.  

The air strip which is 1,500 m long and 25 m wide, is presently equipped to accomodate C 130 planes owned by Sri Lanka Air force.

    Once I remember the former lady PM Sirimia B. too expanded and made Boeing Planes land in her Airport. Now MR extends his to make possible to smoothly land at Iranamadu.

    Waste of Public Money. Mr. Rajapaksha brings more and more investments to the country then all airports will be built.
    These money you can use for providing facilities for under privileged people reducing the Cost of living.

    donkey Sunday, 16 June 2013 03:35 PM

    Surasena Monday, 17 June 2013 08:44 AM

    The president, I have to build airports around the country because all my ministers are buying small planes and helicopters.
