    February 01, 2015

    An order placed by the previous government for a new aircraft with modern facilities to be used by the former President has been revoked, said President Maithripala Sirisena in an interview on a state media on Saturday (31). He said instead, the money would be utilised to buy spare parts for the aircraft of SriLankan Airlines and Mihin Lanka which would be merged.

    The aircraft, at an estimated cost of US$ 16 million, was to be paid for from Treasury funds, and the decision to halt the purchase was taken in consultation with Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe, the President said.
