Flights to Moscow to resume soon – Ranatunga


By Anurada Herath

Tourism Minister Prasanna Ranatunga said air travel between Colombo and Moscow that was suspended by national carrier SriLankan since 28 March would resume soon. 

He said it had been put on hold due to an insurance issue and discussions are underway to introduce an alternative insurance policy to resolve the matter.

He said suspension of flights was not a Government decision. However, he added that such a decision was not within the purview of the national carrier’s management either.
