Jan 08, Colombo: Turkey's flag carrier Turkish Airlines is extending its Istanbul - Male service to Colombo, Sri Lanka from next month.

Currently the Airline flies to Male 5 times a week and the service will be extended to Colombo's Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA) starting from the 1st of February.

As a result of the service extension, operational schedule on Istanbul - Male is being revised, and Turkish Airlines has local traffic rights on Male - Colombo sector, UK-based Routes said.
