    According to the Government, the MRIA has incurred a loss of USD 112.9 million as at December 31, 2016 and proposals have been called from investors to turn the airport into a profit-sharing joint venture. However, no proposals have been received that covers operations, management and maintenance of the airport.

    A proposal has been received in the meanwhile by the Indian Government considering all aspects of the MRIA. A proposal made by Minister of Transport & Civil Aviation Nimal Siripala De Silva, to appoint a committee comprised of several senior Secretaries to Ministries to further study the proposal, was approved by Cabinet this week.

    Due to the low number of flights, it has been proposed to offer long-term aircraft parking services as well as creating flying schools and maintenance services to be offered from the airport.

    Arrival Duty Free is like a desert, It doesn't have any attractive appearance!. Salesman are like people who sell flowers at Katharagama, They are actually begging from the people! That's not how it should be since it is the first place foreign travelers get to see once they enter to the airport.
