The government has taken step to modernize several inland airports in line with inland air transportation sector development activities, Civil Aviation Minister Nimal Siripala Silva said.

According to Civil Aviation Minister Nimal Siripala Silva the abandoned Palaviya inland airport in Puttalam will be renovated under this initiative.

“The runaway will be lengthened to 1,500 meters and widened by a few metres. The Palaviya airport will be a boost for the tourism sector since tourists can easily reach Kalpitiya, Vilpattuwa, and other locations,” the minister Nimal Siripala Silva said.
