Disruptions at BIA: SriLankan Airlines Faces Delays After Staff Walkout

Four SriLankan Airlines flights experienced delays at Bandaranaike International Airport in Katunayake this morning due to a walk-out by ground staff.

The ground staff reportedly walked out from their duties at 4:30 am, leading to delays in at least four SriLankan flights.

SriLankan Airlines, in a statement, acknowledged the incident and confirmed steps are being taken to prevent similar disruptions in the future.
