Airlines SriLanka makes a beeline for refuelling at Thiruvananthapuram airport

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Sri Lanka's national airline has began refuelling at India's Thiruvananthapuram international airport, despite the country's worst economic crisis in decades.

The airport, which is now controlled by the Adani company, has been seeing SriLankan Airlines jet down for refuelling since Sunday.

According to sources, a number of their long-haul flights to Australia and Europe have already used the service, and more are likely in the coming days. The flight time from Colombo to here is approximately 35 minutes, and it is the closest airport from there.

The source said, SriLankan Airlines prefers the Thiruvananthapuram airport to the Chennai airport. Fuel prices are lower here than at Chennai Airport, and there are two federal government-owned fuel stations, including BPCL and Indian Oil, it said.
