National Civil Aviation Policy (Draft)
The Airspace over Sri Lanka is a public asset which has enormous potential to contribute for its socio-economic development. With clear, consistent and farsighted policies in place, the country’s airspace can be made busier and more productive with numerous activities that would demand a variety of ground support, services and resources triggering the country’s growth engine to spin faster producing wider socio-economic benefits. It is with above the objective in mind, that the National Policy for Civil Aviation has been drafted at the instruction of the Hon. Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation and under the guidance of the Hon. Prime Minister’s office, in close coordination and consultation with a representative group of all key stakeholders involved in aviation, setting out the overall objectives of the Government for civil aviation and the high-level policies that should be used to achieve those primary objectives on midterm and long term basis.
One of the main objectives of the proposed National Civil Aviation Policy is to improve the air connectivity enhancing the accessibility to any part of the country from any corner of the world so that Sri Lankan community may enter and compete successfully in the globalized air transport market for economic growth opportunities. Accordingly, the draft civil aviation policy framework proposes opening up of Sri Lanka’s skies to the rest of the world for international commercial traffic on the basis of reciprocity aiming at enhanced connectivity and accessibility. Also the draft National Policy encourages private sector to invest in the development of aviation infrastructure including construction, operation and maintenance of civil airports. It also proposes permitting local private airlines that satisfy the applicable international safety and security requirements to operate international commercial scheduled passenger flights in competition with foreign carriers aiming at securing and consolidating the country’s share international air transport market.
