SriLankan Airlines crew who flew to Wuhan, the epicenter of the Coronavirus outbreak, to repatriate the Sri Lankan students, has declined the flight allowances paid for their said duty period.

They have instead made a request to the airline to utilise those monies for procuring necessary masks and gloves for the ground staff at the Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA).
