July 07, 2023

India's regional carrier Alliance Air has announced the increase of its direct flights between the South Indian city of Chennai and Jaffna in north Sri Lanka. From 16th July onwards Alliance Air will operate daily direct flights to Jaffna from Chennai.

Jaffna to Chennai Alliance Air direct flight operation was started in 2019 but had to be suspended due to the onset of the COVID pandemic and resumed on 12th December 2022.

Before the service, Sri Lankans in the Northern region had to travel to Katunayake by train or a nearly eight-hour-road trip to take a flight out of the country.

The increase in Chennai-Jaffna flight operations is excellent news for the people living in the Northern Province. The daily direct flights between Jaffna and Chennai will be a piece of excellent news to the industry community residing in the northern region since this will give more connectivity with India for trade and business interests, tourism, and personal visiting.
