Domastic aviation industry get boost

Deccan aviation lanka will invest further $1m us dolors to buy a new aircraft. It  will be 17 passenger twin engine one. There is a very high growing demand for the private aircrafts in sri Lanka  to transport domestic travellers, corporate clients and foreign tourists. New aircraft will be here at the end of this year with all the related infrastructure.

This will be the cheapest domestic airline meeting governments request for low cost domestic air transport operations. It will not look only for Colombo - Jaffna and going beyond that to other locations such as Kandy, Trincomalee.

Deccan Aviation Lanka started five years ago to cater to tourists but this did not materialize as a result of the war and the industry faced huge challenges. However, a new market has now emerged to serve corporate clients. Earlier, it catered to local companies transporting investors to visit sites in Sri Lanka and a few foreigners.

Deccan Aviation Lanka is the holder of the helicopter operator’s licence in Sri Lanka since 2004 and the Group has 24 percent equity of the company.
