Tangalle to Colombo Airport via highway

Hi! Can anyone tell me how long does it take from Tangalle to Colombo Airport using highway ( Galle -Airport). Last year when we travelled airport part of highway was not open yet so wonder if it makes a big difference... Seems Sri Lankan airlines reduced flights from Mattala airport to Bangkok so will need to use car... Thanks

Hi there,

Still around 5 hours. Galle to Airport is 3 hours but Galle-Tangalle at least 2. Soon (next month?) Galle-Matara section will open maybe reducing it by 30 mins. The missing Expressway part near Colombo is still missing, open 'maybe' next year...

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]
