Italian company gets contract to supply communications systems to Sri Lankan airports by the government
The Sri Lankan government has reportedly awarded SITTI S.P.A., which is an Italian firm making air traffic control voice communication systems, a contract to supply communications systems to Sri Lanka’s Bandaranaike International Airport and the Ratmalana Airport.
Co-Cabinet Spokesperson, Health Minister Rajitha Senaratne has reportedly told a news conference that the contract is for supplying, fixing and executing a communication system for the two airports.
The Cabinet of Ministers has recently approved a proposal for the deal presented by Sri Lanka’s Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation, Nimal Siripala de Silva.
The contract, worth 1.7 million euro and Rs .6 million, is expected to enhance operational efficiency at the two airports.
The government of Sri Lanka has launched a policy of developing the country’s aviation sector as well as the airports in the country. The upgrading of the communications systems at the Bandaranaike International Airport and the Ratmalana Airport are indicative of the focus laid by the government on developing the sector of airports and aviation. Foreign companies engaged in the aviation business could explore opportunities in Sri Lanka’s aviation industry.
