Cheap Flights to Sri Lanka

Touch down in Sri Lanka and experience all that this perfect destination has to offer. Check out our cheap flights and flight deals to this amazing island.

Sri Lanka is known as the Pearl of the Indian Ocean and rightly so. Here you can relax on pristine sandy beaches, get up close to wildlife on land and underwater, sip cups of world-famous tea and gorge yourself on some of the best seafood you’ll ever eat. Bliss. You’ll also find plenty of history and culture to explore, with the unique Sigiriya Fortress in the north, Buddha’s Temple of the Tooth Relic in Kandy and the Anuradhaapura Ruins. To read more about these sites, and the rest of Sri Lanka, check out our Sri Lanka destination guides.

Sri Lanka’s biggest airport is Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA), or Colombo International Airport (CMB), and is located in the country’s capital, Colombo. International flights arrive at Terminal 1, where you’ll find lots of transport heading to the city. There are both ‘local’ taxis and hotel taxis that will get you into the city, with the local taxi being cheaper and not air conditioned. The free airport shuttle will take you to the bus station, where you can catches buses, trains and tuk-tuks. Buses might be the cheapest, but be prepared for a longer, more difficult journey.

You can also fly into Mattala Rajapaksa International Airport (MRIA), also known as the Hambantota International Airport, in the south. However, far fewer airlines operate out of here.

Book your flights to Sri Lanka below and start your adventure on this wonderful island.
