Colombo/UNI: Sri Lanka's privately-owned airline FitsAir will launch its international passenger flights in October.

This is expected to boost foreign visitor arrivals in the South Asian country, local media reported Tuesday.

FitsAir, a budget airline under the privately-owned investment conglomerate Aberdeen Holdings headquartered in Colombo, will commence international flights on Oct. 5, with the first flight to fly from Colombo to the UAE's Dubai, the airline was quoted as saying in a statement.

The passenger flight service to Male, the capital of the Maldives, will start from Oct. 10, and to Trichy in India from Oct. 28.

By launching international passenger flights, FitsAir will become Sri Lanka's first private scheduled international passenger carrier.
