After FCDO Advice TUI Airlines Cancels Sri Lanka Flights

TUI has decided to cancel all trips to Sri Lanka up until and including May 31 because of the “ongoing political and economic instability” in the country. This decision was made in response to the United Kingdom’s Foreign Office revising its travel advisory to advise against all but essential travel to the country.

Before the departure date, the firm will get in touch with all of the affected clients in order to explore the alternatives available to them. Customers who are only passing through Sri Lanka’s international airport are exempt from the guidance, and those who are already at the resort may go on with their trip without making any adjustments.

Tui has issued the following statement through a spokesperson: “We will continue to monitor the situation and keep our clients updated should there be any additional changes.” We would like to express our gratitude to our clients for their patience throughout this difficult period.

The action comes after many weeks of upheaval in the country, which ultimately led to the resignation of Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa on Monday (9 May), followed by the resignation of all of his cabinet members. The fighting has resulted in the deaths of many individuals, and it is alleged that hundreds of others have been hurt.
