Sri Lanka will establish air links with Myanmar this year to boost tourism, including travels for medical and religious purposes, its Foreign Ministry said in a statement here Friday.

The announcement on air connectivity between the two countries was made after a meeting was held among Sri Lanka’s Foreign Secretary Admiral Jayanath Colombage, Ambassador to Myanmar Prof. Nalin De Silva, and Sri Lanka Tourism Promotion Bureau and SriLankan Airlines officials.

De Silva, who attended the meeting virtually from Myanmar, stressed that there is immense potential for Sri Lanka to attract Myanmar tourists for medical, religious and other purposes.

He said that Myanmar’s government, tourism associations and in particular President U Win Myint have expressed keen interest in establishing air connectivity between the two countries.
