Sri Lanka state-carrier to invest Rs200mn in flight kitchen

Oct 03, 2012 (LBO) – State-run SriLankan Airlines will invest 200 million rupees to build a flight kitchen at the second international airport which is being built in Hambantota in the island’s south, an official said. The second airport at Mattala, built with Chinese financing is expected to be completed by the end of the year.

“This flight kitchen will be much smaller than the one at Katunayake (International Airpot),” chairman Nishantha Wickremasinghe said.

“It will have about 20 percent of the capacity.”

SriLankan’s flight kitchen is a profitable unit which serves the airline and also third party airlines calling at Colombo.
