Air Arabia Abu Dhabi to launch flights to Sri Lanka

Looking for your next holiday destination? Then you might just want to add Colombo to your list, as Air Arabia Abu Dhabi is set to launch flights to Sri Lanka.

The budget airline has just been given its Foreign Aircraft Operator certificate (FAOC) by the Inspectorate of the Civil Aviation Authority of Sri Lanka (CAASL), with flights set to launch next month.

Flights are not yet available to book on the Air Arabia website, but watch this space as bookings should open soon.

Two airlines currently offer flights between Abu Dhabi International Airport and Bandaranaike International Airport: Etihad Airways, and SriLankan Airlines.

The country is known for its ruins, gorgeous sandy beaches and tasty seafood dishes.
