Issuing a statement the airlines said that that its Colombo bound flight from London, UL 504 of January 1, 2015 was delayed due a technical fault being identified whilst the aircraft was on ground. The passengers were accommodated at a hotel in London as it was expected that the rectification work could not be completed overnight due to LHR airport mandatory closure for night curfew.
