If Bandaranaike got an Airport named after her, he sure isn't going to let this one go.

We come the Democratic Socialist Republic of Mahinda Rajapaksa.

We so far have 3 international airports now, I wonder how many more with this guy's aviation hub concept.

It's not named after CBK, its named after SWRD. And honestly the name is ridiculous. KIA is much nicer.

Next we'll have the Rajapaksha Lotus Tower!

Eh, the name isn't that important....sometimes. >.>

I kinda saw this coming though, but I expected him to name the harbour after himself, rather than the airport, given that the harbour is more significant.

After seeing HIA, I am convinced that BIA needs improvements.

Mattala gets priority over BIA

The Government will adopt an open skies policy allowing international carriers to operate freely at the Mattala Rajapaksa International Airport, Aviation Minister Priyankara Jayaratne said yesterday.

Open skies policy is a concept where free market conditions are created for commercial aviation. It provides access to international carriers to operate freely without restrictions.

“This is a move to attract more international traffic and the new policy will be announced next week,” he said. The minister said the policy would not apply to the Bandaranaike International Airport at Katunayake.

The minister said the open skies policy would create a free market environment for the airline industry. Earlier, the Government had planned to have an open skies policy only for a limited period but now it had decided to extend it for an unlimited period.

He said that among other concessions at Mattala would be a 50 per cent discount on ground handling charges for five years.

He said talks were held with various international airlines including Emirates, Qatar Airways, Ettihad, Air Arabia, Sichuan Airlines of China and the Korean Airlines and they had agreed to fly to Mattala. Talks with other airlines were continuing.

Mr. Jayaratne said a 10-acre land has been allocated to Air Arabia for the construction of a 400 room hotel while a local company had also been allocated land for a hotel project.

The first phase of the new 800-acre airport constructed by China Harbour Engineering Company cost US$ 209 million (Rs 26.7 billion).

Meanwhilem Civil Aviation Director General H.M.C. Nimalasiri has gazetted the official commissioning of Mattala Rajapaksa International Airport for domestic and international air transport services.
