Colombo (LNW): The Controller General of Immigration and Emigration has reportedly confirmed that special counters will be opened at the Katunayake Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA) to provide services for tourists arriving in Sri Lanka from foreign countries.
The decision comes in following recommendations by the Tourism Development Committee appointed by the President.
Meanwhile, inside sources confirm that there are still no counters in operation for passengers arriving in the Business Class and the First Class.
LNW was the first to make an exclusive disclosure about the inconveniences passengers and customers had to face at the Katunayake Airport in a detailed report titled “Travellers Dilemma at Bandaranaike International Airport” published on April 09, 2023.
We should be thankful that prompt steps have been taken by the authorities to rectify this issue up to some point instead of letting the nation’s main landing strip rot amidst ever-growing complaints.
