The agreement will enable airlines to offer flights from New Zealand to Sri Lanka and then on to other destinations, with tickets able to be sold for either or both sectors.

The New Zealand Minister signed today's agreement extending 'fifth freedom' rights alongside Sri Lanka's Minister of External Affairs, Professor G.L. Peiris in Auckland.
