Prime Minister of India Shri Narendra Modi is scheduled to inaugurate the International Airport in Kushinagar on 20 October 2021 on the auspicious Wap Poya Day with the inaugural international flight operating from Colombo to Kushinagar. Kushinagar has a pre-eminent position given that the Buddha attained Mahaparinirvana here. It may be recalled that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had announced during the Virtual Bilateral Summit with Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa on 26 September 2020 that the first international flight to Kushinagar will be for a group of Sri Lankan pilgrims.

The delegation from Sri Lanka on the inaugural flight will be led by Namal Rajapaksa, Minister of Youth and Sports, Minister of Development Co-ordination and Monitoring and State Minister of Digital Technology and Enterprise Development. The delegation will also include four State Ministers and one MP in addition to close to 100 senior Buddhist monks, belonging to different sects and prominent temples, spread across Sri Lanka. Senior officials from Sri Lanka also form a part of the delegation. To mark this important occasion, a symbolic gift in the form of two photographs will also be presented to the people of India by the people of Sri Lanka. These two framed photographs, to be installed in the new Airport, feature two murals by eminent Sri Lankan painter Solias Mendis, from the Kelaniya Rajamaha Vihara which depict the gift of Buddhism to Sri Lanka by India.
