Tourist arrivals in Sri Lanka fell 0.1 percent in February 2017 to 197,517, compared with the same month in 2016, the first fall since May 2009 following a daytime closure of the airport for runway repairs.

The dip on the back of lower Chinese and Indian arrivals follows a 12.9 percent year-on-year growth shown in January.

Chinese arrivals were down 21.6 percent to 25,248 while Indian arrivals dropped 0.9 percent to 26,320.
