The government is setting up a storage facility capable of holding three million litres of aviation fuel.

This fuel storage facility will be opened very soon, Airport and Aviation Services Ltd. chairman Prasanna Wickremasuriya told AdaderanaBiz.

“This storage facility will sell fuel to aircraft,” he added.

While the Abu Dhabi based Rotana Jet is preparing to fly to Mattala Air Arabia is also preparing to resume its flights to Mattala. FlyDubai is already operating flights to Mattala.

As reported by AdaderanaBiz recently, Qatar and Etihad Airways are carrying out feasibility studies for their flights to the Mattala international airport.
