UAE carriers have confirmed that all flights to Sri Lanka are operating as scheduled.

In a statement to ARN News, Emirates and FlyDubai said they were "monitoring the situation closely".

Etihad Airways also urged passengers flying out of Sri Lanka to reach the airport four hours prior to departure due to heightened security checks.

In a statement on Twitter, Sri Lankan Airlines assured passengers flying out of Colombo that they will be allowed to reach the airport during the curfew by producing their air tickets at checkpoints.

This comes as a series of bomb blasts on Sunday left over 200 people dead and 400 more injured in the island nation.
