Hmz so no taxi way running parallel to the runaway as at KIA.

Those L shaped things at the end of (both ends) of the runway mean aircraft after completing the landing have to turn around at the end and then trundle back up the runaway towards the taxiway at the centre. And the same thing for taking off.

You have this at the Maldives and some of the Caribbean island airports. Makes sense for them due to the reduced land availability.

I’m sure a few more bucks from China and there can be a good taxi way running parallel (or at least for one half from the “split point” at the middle). Hopefully they have planned such for the future when traffic volumes increase.

Bzzzz

The HIA pictures and construction site itself is rather sleepy. It clearly reflects as a non visionary project such as the Magampura Harbour. We need the surrounding areas be developed concurrently to create an awareness and a seriousness. Looking at these pictures do not give me an interest or a thirst to garner more investment to these areas.

This project is a major fail.

praetorian,
it is the Sinhala south ( not the north/east) that is living on freebies and hand outs from the whole world for the past 30 over years to save your so called 2000 years culture.
Big buildings are not the sign of development and neither will these structures ever contribute to the economy

ROFL.

My post (from ages ago lol) speaks for itself right to this moment, the North and East contributes NOTHING to Sri Lanka's economy. All the industry (no matter how small or weak it is) that earns the country whatever pittance imaginable is from everywhere BUT the North and East. Yes there are loans and so called aid, these are not freebies, they have to be paid back and the puny industries of the "sinhala south" (lest we forget that Sinhalese are denied freedom of movement in their own country and confined to restricted areas) is what generates the income to do so.

What has the North and East given Sri Lanka other than endless destruction? Whatever construction, projects and development work that has been done in the North and East are also sustained from loans/aid which has to be paid back, again from the earnings of the “Sinhala south”.
Does that not make the proud Tamils of the North and East with their 40,000 years of history freeloaders too? Hikz

Don’t forget as ZERO income goes to the state from the North and East (as has been the case since 1977) services such as health care, education, water, electricity and food are all provided for FREE to the inhabitants of the North and East. These services need to be paid for and that bill is footed by the people of the “Sinhala south”, the same people of the Sinhala south who were being hacked to pieces and blown to bits not to so long ago by the very same “innocent civilians” of the North and East. So yes the people of the north and east are free loaders living off freebies.

It is a bitter truth indeed, one free loaders blinded by their racist superiority complex mixed with a bogus victim mentality always fail to note.

the problem is not with the Universities or the Enigineers produced in Sri Lanka but with the politicians.
SL Engineers are doing extremely well overseas in many developed countries but cannot do so in their own backyard which is filled up with dirty politics

praetorian,
the 'Sinhala south" that you claim is repaying also consists of Tamils who are earning for the Sinhala only country. If there are no industries in the north/east that is because the Sinhala only GOSL never considered the north/east as part of the country and never directed any development to that part, hence the uprisings, the same was the reason for the failed southern uprisings.
In your original artcile you have stated that the north was as developed as Colombo, how then, where you contradict your self, exposing your racist Sinhal Buddhist menatality that the Tamils were incompetent.
This laziness among the Sinhala can still be seen in the freebees that the countries governing bodies still continue to expect for tehior survival. Remember Sl is not a country that is self sustaining, it is propped up by aid giving countries tax payers money.
Shame on you that this country has not learnt to satnd on its won feet even after 60 years of independence and racist like you conveniently balme the Tamils for you laziness and incompetence

I was born to a Sinhalese family but who really gives a S**t end of the day I am sri lankan,, I agree with the aid-bowl and exporting labor to Arab world,, what a shame,,, Ideological extremist and lack of interdependent public commissions in SL led to this crisis but noting else

Delay in Mattala Airport opening

Sri Lanka’s second international airport at Mattala in Hambantota is likely to delay its opening until a new date is fixed, an official said.
“We might push it to this year or next year in December or January (2013),” Airport and Aviation Services Ltd (AASL)? Chairman Prasanna Wickramasooriya told the Business Times on Wednesday.

Authorities had previously indicated that the opening of the new airport was scheduled for November this year.
While construction of stage one is expected to conclude by the end of this year, he said no opening date was finalized yet.
On the other hand the contract for the construction work on the first stage of the project is scheduled for completion in the first quarter of 2013, he said.

In this respect, Mr. Wickramasooriya observed that the airport would be ready by January, and trials would also be carried out.
“The President wants us to complete the work properly,” and so they are not in a hurry, the AASL Chairman pointed out.
Responding to queries of international airlines flying into Mattala, the airport’s chief said three airlines have agreed to fly into the new airport upon its opening apart – national carrier SriLankan Airlines and budget carrier Mihin Lanka. But he declinedto give out any names at this stage. However recent reports said budget carrier Flydubai has also agreed to use the airport.

He said Emirates Airlines had also expressed interest as “they have identified the potential there.” This came following their recent meeting at the opening of the new Emirates lounge at the Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA).

Ground handling, landing and parking fees would initially be provided via an attractive package for a period of six months, he said.
Authorities increased the workforce at the Mattala airport project last year in a bid to speed up work from 1200 to 1500 with most picked from the locality. Installations of escalators and lifts have already been carried out at the new airport that would be subjected to tests, Airport and Aviation Services Senior Civil Engineer Mr. Lalith Warusavitharana told the Business Times.
