SriLankan Air Taxi, the domestic amphibious floatplane operations of SriLankan Airlines, is giving passengers the opportunity of an exhilarating water landing on the Bentota River with the launch of its Weekend Scenic Flights. Tickets are priced at just US$ 50 per person.

Passengers already in Sri Lanka just need to proceed to the Ratmalana Domestic Airport just south of Colombo to take the departure flight to enjoy the unique amphibious aircraft experience. Flying just a few thousand feet above the ground far lower than the height that commercial aircraft usually flies SriLankan Air Taxi embarks on a route that offers breathtaking views of the diverse landscapes of Sri Lanka.

The aircraft first heads south to Kalutara, a resort town located approximately 40km south of Colombo, and then inland where passengers can enjoy a birds eye view of the towering Adams Peak and the central hills.

The journey continues down the valley of the Kalu Ganga a popular eco tourism spot for river rafters, canoeists and kayakers then towards the warm blue waters of the Indian Ocean. After a water landing at Bentota River, which lines sparkling golden beaches and one of Sri Lankas most raved about resorts, the flight proceeds back to Ratmalana, cruising northwards along the coast for a picture-postcard view of the South-western coastline.

Flights depart Ratmalana Domestic Airport at regular intervals on Saturdays and Sundays and every trip takes about half an hour.
