India to sign MoU to develop Jaffna airport

India will sign a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to develop Jaffna’s Palaly Airport, PTI reports.

An agreement has reportedly been reached for India to provide a grant of 300 million Sri Lankan rupees ($1.65 million USD) for the development of the airport, including terminal modification, electricity supplies, utilities and transit facilities.

India’s Alliance Air began operating flights to and from Chennai in November last year, while civilian flights between Jaffna and Colombo was only started this month.
