The flag carrier of Sri Lanka will operate 4-weekly flights to Chennai, 3-weekly flights to Mumbai and once-weekly flights to Bengaluru and is expected to introduce significant frequency increases.

Under the new schedules, the Colombo-based carrier will also be resuming once-weekly flights between Colombo and Madurai, Tiruchirappalli, Thiruvananthapuram & Cochin. The airline will connect Hyderabad and New Delhi with Colombo with twice-weekly flights.

Kimarli Fernando, Chairperson, Sri Lanka Tourism, said:

We look forward to welcoming our closest neighbours yet again, so they may experience the variety that Sri Lanka has to offer. Our country’s heritage, culture, wildlife, nature, beaches and more have always proven to be popular among Indian travellers, and they will be able to visit destinations across the country while following the relevant health guidelines.

Going forward, SriLankan Airlines’ operations out of Chennai and Mumbai will expand up to 5-flights-a-week and the Bengaluru-Colombo flight services will be increased to 3-times-a-week.
