After a long wait, Sri Lankan Airlines have relaunched the air taxi service from Colombo to Dikwella (five minutes from Teak House by tuk-tuk). You need to book in advance since the service is not operated if there are no advance bookings. Seven days a week, the sea plane comes down from just north of Colombo in the early morning and four days a week, again, in the afternoon. Details are available from The Teak House.
A journey of up to seven hours by car or van has been reduced to a journey of 45 minutes by air and 30 minutes by van to Bandaranaike Airport , Colombo.
