Sri Lanka's budget airline to take off by December

Flights to Trichy, Trivandrum, Cochin and Calicut

olombo: Recruiting local personnel has delayed HolidayAir, Sri Lanka's first ever budget airline, from taking off as scheduled, with the company now hoping to get off the ground by the first week of December.
"We have now tentatively scheduled to take off during the first week of December this year to several Indian cities including Trichy, Trivandrum, Cochin and Calicut," Chief Executive Officer for the airline company Arjun Ruzaik told the “Asian Tribune.”
Mr. Ruzaik assured that the HolidayAir tickets in comparison to an average fare could be anything between 20% to 60% cheaper.
It is also learnt that the company is in deep discussion with a major regional airline (not Indian) in a bid to strike a deal to utilize that company's expertise in HolidayAir's technical department.
The Government in December 2005 gave the green light to three local based airlines to fly international flights to India. The three companies are Deccan Aviation Ltd., Expo Aviation Ltd., and HolidayAir
