Jaffna airport becomes operational
The first international flight to land at Jaffna airport was an Alliance Air flight from Chennai.

With the airport becoming operational, passengers from northern Sri Lanka area can land in Colombo within few hours.

The resumption of air link between Chennai and Jaffna is a major leap in the efforts by India and Sri Lanka to boost people-to-people contact between close neighbours. The daily flight is expected to enhance trade and business in Jaffna peninsula, which is slowly getting back to its feet after a civil war that lasted for three decades.
