Colombo Airport may refer to:

In this section the Sri Lankan two (2) airports named in here are not named (call) as "Colombo airport" in both cases. The second one, the "Ratmalana Airport", the domestic airport, called as "Colombo Airport" before year 1970. After 1970, the second airport, a fairly big airport comparing to the first airport (Ratmalana airport) came into operation. It commonly called as "Colombo Airport" as the name of the capital of the country (Sri Lanka). But again the airport named as "Bandaranaike International Airport" by then government (Prime Minister Sirimavo Bandaranaike) and again it renamed during the J.R.Jayawardane regime (1977 - 198) as "Colombo International Airport".So from there on it called as "Colombo International Airport".
