The Kuwait Airways has decided to cease its flights to Sri Lanka, due to reasons undisclosed to media.
Flights belonging to the Kuwait Airways had arrived in Sri Lanka twice a week.
It is speculated that the Company has decided to cease air flights to Sri Lanka due to the passengers’ decline in accessing the service over its relatively higher charges in the region.
However, the Civil Aviation Authority of Sri Lanka went on claiming that the Kuwait Airways has ceased its flights to Sri Lanka due to a problem with the company. Neither the dollar deficit, nor any other problem facing Sri Lanka has contributed to the problem, said Rehan Wanniappa, Director of the Civil Aviation Authority.
The ceasing of flight operations is but temporary, he added.
