    Sri Lanka positioning as cargo hub
    http://www.impactpub.com.au/aircargo...9356&Itemid=60


    I feel it can develop like Singapore and Hong Kong, as a service centre and cargo hub

    The construction of the airport is almost complete with about 90 per cent of the airfield, the surrounding road network and a water tower nearing completion. The airport control tower, passenger terminal, cargo terminal and fire and rescue facilities are about 50 per cent complete. Mattala Airport spreading across a 2,000 hectare land area is being built at an estimated cost of USD 209 million.

    The expansion of the Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA) in Katunayake has been expedited. A new terminal is being built at the BIA to accommodate eight flights.

    Construction of the second international airport in Mattala of Hambantota district is also nearing completion and expected to be declared open for international aviation by the end of this year.
