Hi there,

Only direct buses to Katunayake bus stand (and sometimes airport itself) are Colombo, Kandy-Kurunegala, Negombo and a few times a day from Galle. Hence answer is NO. You'd first need a bus to Pettah/Fort, 2:30 to 3 hours, and then minimum 1 hour (in case you can catch an E03 bus which are more rare than the slow and cheap 187) to airport. Timetables online hardly exist in Lanka...
