Staff Reporter

The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has Wednesday announced a 30 percent increase in the international outbound flight operations in its summer schedule for those travelling abroad.

According to the CAA notification released on Wednesday, the aviation regulator has said the increase, which now takes the frequency to 50 pc for international flights, is only applicable to outbound passenger flights.

Earlier it was only 20 percent. The slash to 20 pc was decided as a step to curtail Covid spread in the country.

For the cargo flights, the 30 pc increase is applicable for both inbound and the outbound flights.
