Situated in a neighborhood of Negombo, 32.5 kilometers northerly of the trade capitol Colombo, it is called Bandaranaike after the former prime minister SWRD Bandaranaike.
Managed by Airport and Aviation Services (Sri Lanka) Ltd., it acts as a gateway for SriLankan Airlines, the Sri Lanka flag carriers and the Sri Lankan airline Cinnamon Air. Ratmalana Airport, which mainly services inland flights, is the other airport servicing the town of Colombo. The first Boeing 747 arrived at the airport on 7 November 1971.
At the beginning of the 90s the airport's take-off and landing runways (04/22) were moved north and the old take-off and landing runways were turned into runways for taking off and landing planes. As part of the extension project Phase 1, phase II, airport extension at the airport was recently carried out. As part of Step II of the extension project of phase II, a new building with a further eight gateways is to be constructed.
Work on the new Tier II development project, which will be conducted in April 2017 and should be complete by 2020, is set to begin in April 2017. The Bandaranaike International Airport is fitted with 18 twin passenger boarding bridges to prepare the launch of the Airbus A380 by the carriers. CeLankan Airways is the biggest carrier to operate at the airport, with a total of 25 Airbus planes in Colombo offering regular flights to Europe, the Middle East, India, Southeast Asia, the Far East and Australia.
The Bandaranaike Airport (airport code CMB) in Katunayake, Sri Lanka, is located 27 kilometres just off the coast of the Colombo isle. At present, thirty carriers operate at the airports, which are more than 9 years old. There are three airport passengers handling passengers. Airport 1 is the presently operating Multinational Airport, constructed in 1967, Airport 2 is the new Multinational Airport scheduled for completion in 2019, and Airport 3 is the new Multinational Airport opened in November 2012.
Recently opened, the airport's new Silk Route Lounge accelerates the custom clearance procedure for economically important passengers. Opened in 1967, Airport 1 is the airport's oldest and biggest one. Currently, all major intercontinental services use this facility until 2019, when it opens in 2019. There is a central hall in the central part of the facility, which is directly linked to a hall in which all the gateways are located.
The Serendib Lounges of SriLankan Airlines and the Palm Spirit Lounges are located in the bulk of the building. The opening of Terminals 2 is scheduled for 2019. As part of Step II of the extension project of the Phase II, a new building with eight additional gateways is to be constructed. Work on the new Tier II development project, which will be conducted in April 2017 and is scheduled to be finished in 2019, began in April 2017.
The planned new design will include a new jet with eight piers and 14 jetways as well as an extra gangway with two jetways for the Airbus A380. Opened in October 2009, the terminal processes all freight traffic. This is the oldest available ramp at the airport.
There are 9 pitches, 5 of which are distant and 4 of which are pitches fitted with a passenger dock. At the same time it can accommodate 4 Boeing 747s and 5 Airbus A330-200s. Bravo apron: It has 8 pitches, 4 of which are distant and 4 pitches fitted with a passenger dock. All 8 wide-body aircrafts, e.g. Airbus A330, Airbus A 340, Boeing 777 or Boeing 747, can be accommodated at the same time.
As part of the Stage II R&D programme, the 4 distant piers will be transformed into 4 Airbus A380-capable passenger jetways. All 8 wide-body aircraft such as an Airbus A330, Airbus A 340, Boeing 777 or Boeing 747 can be accommodated at once. As part of the Stage II stage II joint venture, the secluded piers will be transformed into eight Airbus A380-capable passenger jetways.
This is the only ramp currently suitable for the Airbus A380-800. Emirates Airbus A 380 has already used it three times. Bandaranaike International Airport has a unique take-off and landing strip (22.04.) with an asphalt overlay. Furthermore, the authorities have agreed to make an investment in a second airport take-off and landing strip so that the Airbus 380 can arrive at Colombo.
It is also planned to construct another tarmac for the handling of the Airbus A 380 in the near term. Phase II of the BIA extension will also include a second take-off and landing strip capable of accommodating the Airbus 380 and another tarmac to the second one. The planned new facility will include a new two-storey vertical separation aircraft hangar for arrival and departure, a new eight-story jet facility and 14 separate gateways, including two jetways for the new Airbus A 380.
We would have a tax-free commercial centre in the Katunayake BOI zone to lure more businessmen to Sri Lanka. It is planned that the commercial centre will be adjoined to the arrivals terminals and linked by a suspension railway overpass. In the second phase, the company will acquire 600 ha of publicly owned lands, build a take-off and landing strip for new generations of planes, an airplane repairs and service centre, an arrivals and departures station, a commercial passage, a freight centre linked to the airport by train and a multi-storey parking garage.
As part of the development project Phase II, Phase 2, a second passengers carrier will be built and a supply operation will be necessary for the second one. In addition, work is being done to extend the terminals, the airplane car park and the municipal services. After completion of the new building, the airport will convert the airport to a national and local one.
In addition, a two-storey airport will be built with physical separation of approach and departure, as is the case at most of today's major highways. There is a fast drive to Colombo - Katunayake Highway directly from the airport terminus. The second phase itself is to be carried out in two phases; the first phase is to be concluded by 2020.
Work on the Remote Apron and Taxiways project began in April 2017 and should be finished by October 2019. Tenders for the " A " contract for terminals and related works " are currently being examined and works are due to start by November 2017 with the choice of the general contractors and to be ready for operations by the end of 2020.
Completion of the second part of the extension is planned for 2019 and will be supported by Japan. Arriving at the airport on 7 September 2014, the Prime Minister of Japan started the second part of the second BIA deployment financed by the Government of Japan.
There is a bus every 15 min from the airport to Colombo via the Colombo - Katunayake Expressway via motorway R3 with a journey of about 30 min. Katunayake Expressway is a new high-speed rail link between the airport and the town of Colombo, with a journey of about 20 min. and a few min. to the town of Negombo.
Flughafentaxiservice runs a desk in the arrivals hall with a total of over 600 cars. From Negombo via the BIA airport, a high-speed railway system is suggested to establish an electric high-speed connection from the town of Negombo to Colombo Fort, where it will be connected to the planned Colombo Monorail.
From Seeduwa Dadugam Oya, Cinnamon offers regular DHC-6-100 services near the airport. When the RAF left the RAF Negombo in 1956, the Royal Ceylon took the lead and named the RAF RCyAF Katunayake. Bandaranaike International Airport was built and a large part of the flight centre was taken over.
The Sri Lankan Luftwaffe did, however, remain and extended its flying bases alongside the International Airport. SL Airport Hospital is also located in the SLAF Katunayake. On the occasion of the 50-year jubilee of the Sri Lankan Luftwaffe in March 2001, the airport was decorated with the President's colours. Icelandic Airlines Flug 001, a Douglas DC-8 on a chartership, fell into a coir nut orchard on 15 November 1978 as it approached Katunayake, Sri Lanka.
