The Sri Lanka Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has given all passenger airlines landing in the country permission to carry fully vaccinated passengers without any restrictions on the number of passengers per flight.
Capt. Themiya Abeywickrama, Director General of Civil Aviation, told all airlines yesterday that the new set of guidelines to be followed when landing in Sri Lanka from August 1 had been received from the Minister of Tourism and Aviation.
There will be no limitation of passenger numbers per flight for fully vaccinated passengers (administered with the relevant doses and 14 days have lapsed) with requisite vaccination certificates and for passengers arriving through the Sri Lanka Tourism Bio-Bubble.
All passengers mentioned above are to be carried in compliance with Health Ministry and Civil Aviation Authority directives in force.
The CAASL says up to a maximum of 75 passengers per flight are permitted for passengers not arriving via the Sri Lanka Tourism Bio-Bubble and who have not been vaccinated or only partially vaccinated.
