    lucky, thanks for the info. If you book two separate tickets (one to colombo and one out of colombo) just like you did, do you have to go out and check in again? Some countries and/or some airlines combination requires passengers to go through the immigration/custom and check in again if the tickets are booked separately, so I am curious…
