    A9 is not yet open to civilian traffic as de-mining is still going on.

    According to today's article in Daily Mirror the fare is LKR 22,000, but maybe going to be reduced in the coming days.

    Expo Air and Lionair have been operating the route, but I believe that Lionair seized operations a couple of years ago, and Expo Air's website (http://www.expoavi.com/) does not give much information.
