Statement from Foreign Ministry on Aeroflot aircraft

The Foreign Ministry wishes to state the following with reference to the Aeroflot passenger aircraft flight SU-289 which is currently at the Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA).

On June 2, the Commercial High Court of the Western Province issued an Enjoining Order on the Aeroflot flight restraining it from taking off from the BIA. The case relates to a commercial dispute between the plaintiff, Celestial Aviation Trading 10 Limited, an Irish company, against the first defendant the Public Joint Stock Company ‘Aeroflot’ and the second defendant N.C. Abeywardene, Acting Head of Air Navigation, Airport and Aviation Services of Sri Lanka (AASL), Katunayake.

The matter is still pending final determination of the Court. This matter is also under consultation through normal diplomatic channels.
