    If we have direct flights to Sydney Australia,Welligton NZ with a free night’s rest in a hotel in Katunayake is good for passengers from UK and EU nations going to these cities down under. Some passengers doesn’t like being inside a plane for more than 10 hours. Some are worried about DVT caused by long flights. If we do it right then we might grab some trade from Singapore, Gulf states etc.
