More Passenger Vessels Calls at the Port of Colombo

The number of passenger vessels calling at the Port of Colombo has increased. According to recent reports during the month of March 2016, 11 super luxury passenger vessels have called at the passenger terminal and other terminals of the Port of Colombo.  Among them were  MV  COSALAM INOSA,  MV COSTA NEORIVIERA, MV ISLAND SKY, MV ROTTERDAM, MV PACIFIC PRINCESS,  MV AIDA BELLA AMESTERDAM,  MV Europa – 2, MV AURORA and MV MEIN CHIFF.

Sri Lanka Ports Authority has extended all services required to local agents of these shipping lines towards timely facilitations in this regard as well.  Thousands of school children visiting the Port of Colombo daily have also been able to observe the arrival of these luxury passenger liners at the Port.

The present Government has by now, created, introduced and implemented a number of  fruitful programmes to attract tourists and travelers  to Sri Lanka from around the world. The Government has also launched  several programmes to extend facilitation to them.

Under the guidance of Hon. Minister of Ports and Shipping – Arjuna Ranathunga, all necessary  instructions have been extended directly by the Chairman of Sri Lanka Ports Authority (SLPA) – Mr.Dammika Ranathunga and all officers and staffs at the Operations, Navigation, Logistics, Engineering, Security and other divisions are implementing these instructions efficiently in order to extend a productive service at Sri Lanka Ports Authority  around the clock.

With the dawn of 2016, so far, 21 passenger vessels have called at the Port of Colombo.  More  passenger lines are scheduled to call at the port during the  next  months of the year.
