This is what the Egyptians did with theier new Terminal for the same cost of $350 Million. Lets see what our government will do. If you guys have any cool videos of any new airports built using the same cost feel free to share.

Sri Lanka's Expo Aviation recommences flights to Jaffna

Jan 23, 2012 (LBT) – A media report stated, Sri Lanka's Expo Aviation will recommence twice daily flights to Jaffna in Sri Lanka's north using a 12-seater Cessneda Grand Caravan aircraft which costed 2.6 Million US Dollors
.
Expo Aviation Managing Director Seraj Mohammed says demand is seen picking up. The firm was awaiting clearance from civil aviation authorities to start flights. Demand had dropped after a land route to Jaffna via the A-9 highway was opened after the war ended. Daily demand for seats had dropped from 200 to 36 after the land route was opened, the report said.

Interesting that Expo is using the Grand Caravan !!! And I wonder if it will be single pilot of two pilot (though the caravan is certified for Single pilot ops) ..

A new policy change in the aviation sector has been mooted with a focus on infrastructure development and promotion of air cargo and transshipment with the participation of the country's two main carriers. SriLankan Airlines and Mihin Lanka have been identified as the main carriers in the country that would be actively involved in policy implementation.

IndiGo sends more support work to Sri Lanka

FEBRUARY 15, 2012

by NEELAM MATHEWS

IndiGo, India’s largest budget carrier with a fleet of 48 Airbus A320 airliners, has awarded SriLankan Engineering its largest contract for maintenance of 26 C-checks through 2012. This is the fourth consecutive year IndiGo has outsourced to SriLankan and it is the largest overseas outsourcing of maintenance, repair and overhaul work by an Indian carrier. The contact has been awarded at a time when onerous taxes appear to be making Indian MRO providers uncompetitive.

This is one boring and sleepy design. Nothing futuristic. Hope they have not used one of their in house architects rather than a renowned Lankan architects abroad.
