Colombo Airport (BIA) New Terminal

Next month a new terminal with eight aerobridges is scheduled to open. The capacity will be lifted from the current 3 million to 5 million. New duty free shops and a lounge has been added previously.

Could someone who has recently passed Colombo post some pics up of the new terminal??

Thanks

Colombo Airport New Runway

I know the expansion project has been widely spoken of in this forum, but does anyone know if the work on the second runway is completed? If yes, any comments/info on it?

I found this picture from the company website, which is constructing the runway:



It looks completed to me...

I'm just wondering if it is completed, why is it so hush hush...Not a thing has been mentioned in the news. And I have checked the local news for months now.

Maybe there is a 2nd runway. Not completely sure about it though

Good to see though that the 2nd airport in SL will start in September.

Also, last year they said that there was an airport-CMB rail link under consideration, Has its construction started yet??

What second airport? You talking about the one in the south-east right?

For the rail link they are waiting for a company to pick up the contract. Knowing the government, they'll take about ten years to find their 'perfect' company, and will take another twenty years to finish building it.

Slow Pokes

But I have to give them slack with all the Tiger problems, but even without them they are slackers

LOL!

They said that construction was to start by Nov 2005! I personally think it wouldve been a much better investment than the expressway, if they also upgraded the current cargo rail line to the BIA.

✈ | UL/MJ | Sri Lankan Airlines and Aviation

With SriLankan Airlines joining Oneworld and the phenomenal growth in Sri Lankan tourism I think it's appropriate to have this thread where we can chart the growth in the Sri Lankan Aviation sector. In this regard, SriLankan Airlines is expanding it's fleet with Airbus A350s and the Bandaranaike International Airport is due to start a $500 million USD expansion and Sri Lanka's newest airport, Mattala Rajapaksa International Airport was only opened last year.

To kick things off:

SriLankan airlines in Frankfurt
