To add excitement to departing passengers at the Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA) during the Cricket World Cup, an interactive cricket pitch has been set up at the Airport to test a participant’s throwing ability. Passengers who spend/shop at any outlet in the departure lounge of the BIA would be entitled to test their throwing skills at an interactive net at the departure lounge.
The challenge is to make a perfect throw from a distance of approximately 22 feet to a wicket keepers glove. Successful participants would walk away with Sri Lanka caps and Sri Lanka mugs.
This interactive game is organised by Airport and Aviation Services (Sri Lanka) with the participation of Alpha Orient Lanka.
“Interactive games of this nature to support a national event like the Cricket World Cup, adds excitement among passengers at the Bandaranaike International Airport. In this “Refreshingly Sri Lanka Visit 2011” year, we hope to improve the ambience at the Airport with such activities for the benefit of international passengers. I would like to thank Alpha Orient Lanka for supporting us on this venture” said Kamal Ratwatte, Deputy Chairman Airport and Aviation Services (Sri Lanka) at the inauguration of the interactive net.
