According to December 18, 2010 PIA Press Release, PIA is planning to start flights to Colombo, Sri Lanka, before opening of Cricket World Cup 2011. The date of commencement of Colombo flights will be announced soon.
The first match of Cricket World Cup 2011 will be played on February 19, 2011, so we should expect to see PIA initiating Colombo flights before that date.
