Bandaranaike International Airport

Bandaranaike International Airport is twenty-two miles from Colombo in the nearby suburb of Katunayake. It primarily handles international flights, while a second airport in the region handles domestic flights. More than thirty airlines, including Qatar Airways, Korean Air, and Emirates, offer flights, although many of the airlines only offer flights to one or two destinations, and you can book these flights through ebookers.

Parking at the Airport

To meet the needs of passengers flying from Colombo, the airport has multiple parking areas. The terminal car park has 400 spaces and charges 150 rupees for cars and 230 rupees for larger vehicles. The remote car park is further from the terminal, but it charges a lower rate of 50 to 100 rupees, and it has special spaces available for motorcycles.

Get to Colombo

You don't need to worry about tracking down a parking spot when you take a taxi to the airport. You will pay around 2,640 rupees from Colombo, and you can find a taxi with air conditioning for about 300 rupees more. Some travellers might prefer taking one of the local buses to the airport. These buses drop passengers off at a bus stop near the terminal, and you can grab a shuttle bus that will take you to the terminal. The shuttle buses pick up passengers from the bus stop every fifteen minutes.

Airport Dining Choices

You can find a wide range of dining choices at the airport. Sri Lankan Airlines runs several restaurants offering international dishes and regional dishes in the departure lobby. The transit area is home to a small bar that provides travellers with alcoholic drinks and a coffee bar with a selection of local and well-known coffees. The transit area also has a snack bar, which offers faster service than some of the other restaurants, ensuring that you don't miss your flight from Colombo because of slow service.

Arriving in London

Flights to London may arrive at one of a number of major airports that are located around the city. For example, London Heathrow, London Gatwick, and London Stansted airports all have good connections to the city, as a result of the many domestic and international flights that land at these airports. London City and London Luton are also well connected.

Getting into the city

London is one of the most famous cities in the world, and there are plenty of historic sightseeing opportunities and renowned entertainment venues around the centre. These can be easily reached from each of the main airports, given the dedicated express rail services that operate from Heathrow, Gatwick, and Stansted.

Travellers arriving at London Heathrow, for instance, can reach the city centre in just 15 to 30 minutes on the express train to Paddington station, or in about an hour using a cheaper ticket on the London Underground, Piccadilly Line. London Gatwick lies 28 miles outside central London, but travellers can reach the city in around 30 minutes on the express train to Victoria station. London Stansted is 40 miles from the centre of London, but travellers can get to Liverpool Street station on the train in about 45 minutes.
