New Airports to build in Sri Lanka

Ministry of Transport and Civil Aviation said an airport was to be constructed in Haputale under a scheme to develop domestic air travel in the country very soon. As per the budge reading there are 4 new airports to be build in Srilanka for focusing more into tourism and local transport. Such as Haputale, Puttalam, Hinguragoda and Kandy.

As stated, above 4 highlight locations are main attraction of tourist itinerary, therefore the government is more focus to setting up these airport to boost the tourism segment in Sri Lanka to handle 4 Million travelers by 2020.

The airport would consist of a brand new airport terminal and a runway which would measure 1.2 km in length and 75 m in width. The cost of the project was estimated to be in the region of Rs. 700 million. The airport would be a boon to the area frequented by tourists, both local and foreign who visit Ella, Bandarawela, Nuwara-eliya, Badulla and Diyathalawa.

But in most common observation, only a small portion of the tourist are using the air travels between the domestic locations and majority of the tourist arrive is sort of budget tourist; who likes to explore srilanka at low cost and get more experience.

Therefore as my thought is about to improve the road transport such as improve the quality of roads and introduce new discipline government Buses (SLTB), increasing number of trains between the main destinations, create new railway lines to cover all over sri lanka to cater faster train service and introducing metro in main cities to avoid traffics in urban.

But in overall, all these development programme would be cost to government and increasing more financial burden to Srilanka for short term.
