Travellers using the Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA) have been requested to be present at the airport five hours prior to the departure time, Deputy Transport Minister Ashoka Abeysinghe says.

The delays are due to the renovations of the main runway. Therefore, the BIA will be closed from  8.30 am to 4.30 pm. each day for a period of three months.
