Sri Lanka Airports & Charter Routes

To say Sri Lanka has been surging in the past few decades would be an understatement. Its economy is thriving, expanding beyond agriculture exports and tourism into services and manufacturing. Yet Sri Lanka also remains a recreational paradise. Thousands of travelers charter private jets to Sri Lanka every year to take advantage of the island nation’s natural beauty, tropical climate, and many luxury resorts and activities.

Sri Lanka is small – roughly the size of West Virginia in the United States, or a little bit smaller than Ireland. Yet with a population of 20 million, surrounded by beaches, and filled with resorts and outdoor excursions, it’s hard to get enough of the Sri Lanka experience without wanting to come back for more.

Popular Private Jet Airports in Sri Lanka

There are only 17 airports in Sri Lanka, though that number expands to 37 if you include Waterdromes. Traveling via private jet charter to Sri Lanka opens the door to arriving at almost any airport that is close to your destination. But in terms of international travel, the two most common destinations for airports include:

  • Bandaranaike International Airport (CMB / VCBI) – The single most common airport to arrive in Sri Lanka is Bandaranaike International, located near Colombo. With the exception of private jet charter flights, this airport serves primarily domestic flights and international flights to and from Asia. At 10,000,000 passengers a year, there is some congestion landing here, but the amenities for travelers may make it worthwhile. An alternative airport may be Ratmalana Airport, which is still an international airport but sees fewer passengers. Only small planes can land at Ratmalana, however.
  • Mattala Rajapaksa International Airport (HRI / VCRI) – Mattala Rajapaksa International Airport is the largest airport in Southeast Sri Lanka. It is also almost fascinatingly unpopulated, serving only 50,000 passengers despite its large size. For Sri Lanka, that emptiness is a bit of a scar on their reputation, but for private charters to Sri Lanka, it can be an advantage, as there is always space to land and limited congestion.

Other airports depend on your ultimate destination. Most other airports are designed exclusively for domestic flights, so runway sizes differ between them. At evoJets, we’ll always make sure that your Sri Lanka private jet arrives at the best airport for your ultimate destination.
