Velana Intl Airport Sets New Air Traffic Movement Record

Velana International Airport (VIA) set yet another air traffic movement record earlier this week on Saturday.

On 7th January 2023, VIA recorded 856 air traffic movements which consist of 605 seaplane movements and 251 wheel-based movements.

VIA has seen a significant growth in airport movements following the opening of the new runway on 6th October 2022.

The last runway movement record was set on 22nd December VIA set a new record for runway movement with 228 total runway movements, including 104 International, 104 domestic, and 20 general aviation.

With three Chinese airlines preparing to operate flights to VIA, 2023 is perhaps on route to becoming the busiest year for VIA.
