The Katunayeke International Airport at Colombo is a very good airport. Visitors who visit Sri Lanka return back to India from Colombo.


The Airport is very nice. There are a lot of shops where visitors can buy Sri Lankan products. But the goods are very expensive.


During the Christmas the Airport is well decorated. There are christmas trees and persons dressed as Santa Claus during Christmas.


There is very serious security check system within the Katunayeka airport. Even after the Boarding passes are given passengers are checked.
