Sri Lanka's second international airport in Mattala is attracting interest from Airbus A380 operators, and the airport agency stands to earn more navigation fees from overflying aircraft, a top official said.

"A lot of airlines are interested in this runway," chairman of Airport and Aviation Services of Sri Lanka Ltd, Prasanna Wickramasuriya said.

"Airlines flying over from Dubai to Sydney, would prefer to have an air route over Sri Lanka since we have a runway like this."

The Mahinda Rajapaksa International Airport in Mattala has a 3,500 metre runway, 60 metres wide 7.5 metre shoulders which has been designated 'Code F' by the International Civil Aviation Organization.

Mattala airport which is opening next week will commence with flights by Emirates-based Air Arabia and Fly Dubai and state-run SriLankan and Mihin Air.

"Airlines like Emirates, Qatar are also interested because we have A380 capable runway," Wickramasuriya said.

Sri Lanka already earns navigation fees from aircraft overflying its flight information region, but industry analysts have said that the full potential of controlling air traffic in the Indian Ocean is yet to be exploited.

Currently Emirates, Qatar Air etc. operate many flights per day from Middle East to Australia flying over Sri lanka. ( non stop Colombo) Boeing 777, A 340 etc . are diverted in this route.

At the moment A 380 s take longer route over India to Australia via Singapore.

As we have A 380 facilities in the new airport there is a good possibility to increase the 380 traffic over us because they can save much fuel and avoid highly congested Singapore, K/L area.

A 380s are used extensively by many airline than we think.

At this moment there are six (6) A380 planes flying closely to each other in Singapore / KL area towards Western countries.

@ Chinwi

I see you are passionate about this project. It appears to have been a miracle in the making.

In 1981 Singapore started its Phase I expasion with an investment of SIN$ 1.8 Billion.... a lot more that us.

However the runway is 0.5km short of Changi, but still long enough for an A380. The better thing is the width is bigger.

Nevertheless, the best way to promote this is to set up Hambantota has a Aircraft Maintenance Hub. A lot of the major airlines are cutting costs in this department and outsourcing it to Malaysia. Wink

Yes , Yes ! Smile

Actually I was passionate about flying and Air traffic Controlling from my childhood !.

When any kind of related development happened I was attracted madly. ( Pissu thamayi )

In mid 70s I used Short wave (SW2) valve radio to listen to Air Traffic Controlling between ground controls and air crafts in the entire area from Singapore to Dubai. Had many sleepless nights because radio waves travel best in nighttime. Actually we could listen even the Cocos island control.

In 1978 when Islandic DC 8 carrying Indonesian Haj pilgrims came down at Kimbiulapitiya I cut school and walked miles to see it.

Even now I know how to listen approach control.
(Those days we lived in Ratmalana. ) .

Hence the New Airport is indeed a miracle and a big attraction for me.

Actually , I am flying from CMB to Maththala UL 898 this Friday ! Very Happy - Sri Lankan First scheduled flight from CMB- HRI .
( ayiyo...me minihata nam pissuma thamayi - as per my wife tongue )

Now the serious talk:

By the way, we are exploring the possibility to set our early presence in Maththala area. We are getting some positive signals from Freight handling / importer ( fruit and veg) in UAE. They hope to use Air Arabia link to Sharjah to import local farmer products. We have to help them in collecting , providing top quality coolroom and packaging services from this side.

They also interested in our cutflowers from Hill country. Dubai flower center import tons of flowers, roses and rose petals (from Kenya ? ) and redistribute all over the middle east.
Kenya is at same distance to Ceylon.

We have already submitted the project report to the authorities.

Bye
