In a piece of good news, Indian travellers planning to visit Sri Lanka will get a return ticket free of cost. The Sri Lankan airlines has come up with a ‘Buy One Get One Free’ ticket offer to Indian tourists travelling to Sri Lanka and including those who got COVAXIN. The offer is valid until October 31, 2021.
“Exciting offer from SriLankan Airlines! Buy One Get One Free from India to Sri Lanka. Offer Valid only for Indian nationals travelling on tourist visa. Reserve your ticket today! Please contact your nearest SriLankan Airlines Office or your travel agent to book your ticket” SriLankan Airlines said in a tweet.
The “buy one and get one free” is expected to draw an impressive number of travellers from India to Sri Lanka at a time when global travel is still restricted and the tourism industry has taken a severe hit. The discounted air tickets together with special incentives offered by the Sri Lankan industry partners would indeed influence Indian holidaymakers to choose Sri Lanka.
Accordingly, Sri Lanka is welcoming fully vaccinated Indian tourists including Covaxin and there will be no quarantine for travellers who test Covid negative on arrival in Sri Lanka. Fully vaccinated Indian travellers will be required to produce a negative PCR report issued not before 72 hours of their arrival and undergo an on-arrival PCR test at a certified hotel in Sri Lanka. They will then be allowed to roam across the country freely. A mandatory RT-PCR test will be conducted in the hotel and if anyone tests positive will be taken to health care centres run from hotels.
