Flights to Sri Lanka: the teardrop of India from £416

If you're looking for flights to Sri Lanka, formerly known as Ceylon, there are many direct flights available which naturally are the fastest way to arrive, however a cheaper alternative could be an indirect flight with one or two stops. Sri Lanka flights arrive at Colombo International Airport, from which you can easily travel onto other airports in Sri Lanka, such as Koffala, Katugastata or Hambantota, using the national airline and some regional companies. Flights from the UK to Colombo take roughly 11.5 hours. The best way to find cheap flights to Sri Lanka is to use our comparator: it will show and compare all routes and prices on offer, regular or low-cost; helping you to find the flight which best meets your requirements.

Why not begin your exploration of Asia in the beautiful "teardrop of India"? Easyvoyage can help you to get there for less with cheap Sri Lanka flights.
Sri Lanka is home to an array of interesting cultural and environmental wonders and Sri Lanka flights do not have to be expensive. Cheap flights to Colombo, for example, can be found from as little as 461.
Colombo is the only international airport in the country and flights to Colombo often include stopovers in Kuwait or another country in the Gulf.
It is important to take the local weather in Sri Lanka into consideration when searching for airline tickets to Sri Lanka in order to avoid getting caught out in the rain. This 66000km squared island has an extremely varied climate dependent on the altitude and monsoons. The south-west coast experiences the most sunshine and least rainfall between January and March. As a result flight deals from November through to February can be quite expensive. Nevertheless, in March it is possible to find cheaper flight tickets and make the most of the beach weather as well as the North and East of the island.
March is also the best time to visit the Sacred City of Kandy, a Buddhist site home to the Royal Palace and Temple of the Tooth Relic (the sacred tooth of the Buddha). Unfortunately, it is impossible to escape the rain showers that occur in the mountainous inner island where these relics are found, however these usually only last a short amount of time in March.
Finally it should be noted that tourists often flock to Sri Lanka in December, July and August and consequently flights to Sri Lanka at this time can increase quite significantly.

14th/15th January: Thai Pongol. The Hindu Harvest festival, honours the sun god, the bringer of rains and the cow. After temple ceremonies, the first grains of the new paddy harvest are ceremonially cooked in milk in a special pot - the direction in which the liquid spills when it boils over is an indicator of good or bad luck.
Between 12th-15th April: Sinhalese & Tamil New Year. The Sinhalese and Tamils gather at this ancient feast and share their traditions, rice milk and traditional games.
June: Poson Poya, the full moon festival, commemorates the introduction of Buddhism into the country by Mahinda in 3rd century BC. It is marked by mass pilgrimages to Anuradhapura, while thousands of white-robed pilgrims climb to the summit of Mihintale.
July - August: Vel. Colombo's most important Hindu festival, dedicated to Skanda, it features not one but two dazzling processions during which the god's chariot and vel (spear) are carried across the city.
October - November: Deepavali. The Hindu Festival of Lights commemorates the return from exile of Rama, hero of the Ramayana (Holy Scripture), with the lighting of lamps in Tamil households, symbolic of the triumph of good over evil, and the wearing of new clothes.
