Yes, you get a very nice view of the ramp airside. Only problem is there ain't much to see really...if you're there at night you can't see much at all as the airport ramp isn't well illuminated.

But whatever's there (especially large pax traffic) will be clearly visible.

Probably the best thing about Bandaranaike Int'l is the fact that all flights leave from remote stands - the bus journey is good fun!

enjoy...

Yeah, there isn't much to see. Take a look at: http://www.airport.lk/f-schedule.htm

I wish I would be there to see the Mahan Air A300 and the Oman Air 737. And less importantly, the QR 320 and SV 747, although I've seen its 747s before.
