AirAsia flights operating to Sri Lanka

AirAsia is aware of the current State of Emergency declared in Sri Lanka and is actively monitoring the situation.

The country’s President declared a state of emergency for 10 days to rein in the spread of communal violence after clashes erupted between majority Buddhists and members of the minority Muslim community.

Tension has been growing between the two communities in Sri Lanka over the past year, with some hardline Buddhist groups accusing Muslims of forcing people to convert to Islam and vandalising Buddhist archaeological sites.

At present, AirAsia flights to Sri Lanka are operating as per scheduled.

AirAsia will continue to observe the situation and keep guests informed on the latest updates.

Australians who are due to travel to Sri Lanka should register and monitor advice of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade at www.smartraveller.gov.au.
