Re-opening of airports could be delayed; Army Commander

The re-opening of International Airports in Sri Lanka would most likely be delayed, said Army Commander Lieutenant General Shavendra Silva.

Initially, the government had planned to re-open the airports on the 01st of August 2020.

The Army Commander said despite all measures in place to re-open the airports, the decision would be reconsidered taking into account the situation in other countries, especially in neighboring states.




He said there were concerns with regard to the increase of COVID-19 cases across many countries in the region and world.
