SriLankan Airlines, the National Carrier of Sri Lanka and member of the oneworld alliance, is making a concerted push to propel itself back into sustained growth, with a strategic turnaround plan that will return the airline into profit. 

The airline also underlined its determination to recover from the setbacks caused by slumping passenger numbers due to the terror strike in the country. Recently, passengers on the airline travelling to, from or transiting at Colombo's Bandaranaike International Airport during the festive season, were treated to traditional delicacies and cultural performances that included traditional songs and musical performances from renowned artistes  as a welcoming gesture.

Passengers who became part of the festivities, expressed their joy to be in Sri Lanka and how they felt safe and welcomed at the airport and throughout their stay in the country. SriLankan Airlines made use of the opportunity to thank them for choosing the National Carrier as well as other airlines to travel to Sri Lanka and to onward destinations via BIA. 

Meanwhile, the airline's recovery plan includes enhanced services along major routes on the latest model aircraft, and  major upgrades in product to improve passenger experiences along many of its most lucrative routes, including to destinations in the Middle East.

Future plans include transforming the airline into a major hub-and-spoke network operator with a streamlined and efficient hub in Colombo, servicing its own and alliance partner flights from and to Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Asia and Oceania. 

Already flying daily to Colombo from all the major cities in the GCC, SriLankan Airlines provides hassle-free, seamless connections to onward flights to South Asia, Southeast Asia, East Asia and Oceania on its all-Airbus fleet. 

The airline envisages an increase in fleet numbers as it boosts services on lucrative routes and launches new routes in line with consumer demands and business opportunities. The airline is also in the process of installing premium economy seating across its widebody fleet and plans to add four new Airbus aircraft over the next five years to enhance passenger and freight carrying capacity, eventually building up to a fleet strength of 34 by 2025.

SriLankan Airlines today flies a 27-strong all Airbus fleet, which includes the state-of-the-art A330-300 and A320neo aircraft connecting to 100 destinations in 47 countries (including codeshare operations). Launched in 1979, Sri Lanka's National Carrier is an award winning airline with a solid reputation for service, comfort, safety, reliability, and punctuality.
