On june14th @ 3:30 am; I arrived at colombo airport, to join a group of six other passengers, waiting on the gulf air check in counter, which was closed . Departure was scheduled for 5.00am, waited til 9.00 am; and no one showed up. According to customs representative, seats were re booked to others on first come, first serve basis , effectively cancelling out those passengers who were already waiting. Rendering itineraries useless. and forcing me to re purchase another return ticket to the USA Baggage was lost for 30 days, returned destroyed thereafter , only to be dumped in thrash; all three locks were broken and contents lost.

Was travelling on Kuwait airlines with connection onwards. Flight was at 4.30 am. Both my husband and I had to use the toilets before embarking on our flight. The toilets were really filthy with water all over the floor and no cleaning attendant in sight. My husband spoke to the Supervisor of the Company contracted to keep the toilets clean and he mumbled some excuse saying he could not find the attendants - guess they were all asleep somewhere. It leaves a bad impression on tourists and those visiting our country. This was not the case the last time I travelled which was in february of this year. Who is responsible?

I'm a srilankan and yesterday I was travelled to Singapore. As this is my first time of abroad ground staff very badly harass me for not bringing dollars with me, instead helping me in a good way.and anyway I had credit and debit was big mental trauma for me.but at Singapore airport I had no problem at all.l feel very sad about my country for letting down own srilankan in such a way

Colombo air port not standed to the other international airports because most of the tourist are visiting to Colombo but facilities are very poor toilets/waiting area chairs/immigration area . as per the president concept he needs to build the new airports but neglecting katuanayka air port. therefore requesting all the sri lankan ministers see the difficulties in air port .

PLEASE BE CAREFUL yes i suppose the airport security is not good at all because they managed to steal the gold jewellery from a pad loacked checked in baggage..And they had also locked the bag again as if nothing happened to it. Still surprised with their method of stealing things.. Dale : BEWARE!, Airport Security are thieves here, I was on a transit on this airport to Male and their luggage security manage broke my delsey luggage zipper as it was pad-locked, and stole a valuable item on my luggage, I know that they have opened as there was a security seal on it. For some reason they know how to choose what to steal.
