Since civil war came to an end in 2009, Sri Lanka has enjoyed rapid economic development. With that growth, the number of business travelers and tourists has risen to the point of overwhelming the designed capacity of Bandaranaike International Airport, the country’s only international airport.
To meet the rising demand for air travel and create a more convenient experience for travelers, the government of Sri Lanka decided to expand the airport facilities and requested cooperation from the government of Japan. The Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) agreed to provide official development assistance in the form of a yen loan. JAC and Nippon Koei formed a joint venture that has contracted with Bandaranaike International Airport and is providing design services as of November 2015.
