Sri Lankan airforce's cargo flights unsafe for travel

Friday May 08, 2020

Cargo flights used by the Sri Lankan airforce are unsafe for travel, the government has admitted.

 

The Sri Lankan government has brought in aeronautical engineers from Ukraine to look into the possibility of repairing the flights and re-using them for usual cargo and passenger flights.

 

All four Antanov cargo flights used by the Sri Lankan airforce were brought from Ukraine in 1995, during the presidency of Mrs Kumaratunga.
