SriLankan Airlines, the national carrier of Sri Lanka, suspends flights to Russia.
According to information published by TASS with reference to the Ceylon Today newspaper, this decision was made in connection with operational restrictions caused by anti-Russian sanctions. The airline expressed its regret over the temporary cessation of flights, as well as hope for a speedy resumption of flights to Moscow.
“The international financial and other sanctions that Russia has been subjected to in connection with the ongoing military operation in Ukraine have had a direct impact for SriLankan Airlines flights to Russia. The airline is forced to stop flights to Moscow until further notice,”, SriLankan Airlines said in a press release.
