Colombo Airport Mini Guide

Colombo Airport otherwise known as Bandaranaike Airport is the island’s main international airport and its national carrier Sri Lankan Airlines has a daily flight from London Heathrow.  The airport is 22 miles from the city and in bad weather, such as in the monsoon season, many flights arriving at night recommend that the passengers stay overnight in the nearest city, Negombo. Taxis and local buses are available to take you into the city and there’s a local train going into Colombo’s main station. If you wish, you can hire a car from the airport.
