Airlines from Sri Lanka allowed unlimited flights to metros

Airlines from Sri Lanka will be allowed to operate unlimited flights to Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Bengaluru and Chennai.

Sri Lanka is among the six countries with which “major issues were resolved” under the National Civil Aviation Policy (NCAP) at the recently concluded International Civil Aviation Negotiations, an official statement issued by the Ministry of Civil Aviation said. The NCAP calls for India to look at having “open skies” agreements with various countries.

Finland, Czech Republic and Spain are the other countries with which India has resolved issues under NCAP \to allow open skies. Open skies between countries allow airlines from both the sides to operate unlimited flights. Besides, airlines from India will be allowed to operate more flights to various parts of the world, including Oman, Saudi Arabia, Ethiopia and Ghana.

India has renegotiated traffic rights with Oman and increased the entitlement by 5,131 seats a week. With this, the total capacity entitlement has increased to 21,147 seats a week from 16,016 seats allowed earlier between the two countries.
