SriLankan Airline starts refueling at Thiruvananthapuram Airport

As Sri Lanka is in its worst economic crisis, its national airline has started refueling at India’s Thiruvananthapuram International Airport.

The airport is now owned by the Adani Group, and as of Sunday, SriLankan Airlines Airport will depart for refueling.

According to sources, some of their long flights to Australia and Europe have already taken advantage of the services, and more of their flights are expected in the coming days.

The average flight time from Colombo to here is about 35 minutes and the nearest airport is from there.

Sources say SriLankan Airline prefers Thiruvananthapuram Airport to Chennai.

Sources said fuel prices here are lower compared to Chennai Airport and there are two fuel sales units owned by the central public sector, which includes BPCL and Indian Oil.
