SriLankan Airlines flight UL504 en-route from London to Colombo diverted to and landed safely in Frankfurt airport last night due to a medical emergency, SriLankan Airlines sources said.

"The most important factor was the health and safety of the passenger in concern. We have made every arrangement to meet the needs of our customers who were affected by this incident," they said.

The flight departed Frankfurt at 0534hrs (Frankfurt Time) and is expected to arrive in Sri Lanka via Kuwait at 2355 hrs. It will briefly stop in Kuwait for a crew change due to legal flight crew duty-time limitations.

    Moral of the story is never fly an airline on the brink of bankruptcy.

    Does Sri Lankan Airlines got landing rights in mainland Europe ?

    'Frank' . You think Frankfurt airport is an abandoned paddy field ?

    Arnold, is a classical mud slinger, pls check the amounts of medical diversions a day in commercial aviation and then comment. Also, rightly or wrongly with all the complexities Ul still provide an awesome service to the nation.

    Dear Arnold! dont showcase your dumbness. appreciate what our national carrier had done amidst the fact that this landing causes a huge cost and disruption to the sked. Some airlines never stop due to medical reasons. they let passengers suffer. Also do medical emergencies happen due to the airline's bankruptcy?

    Sincere Friday, 02 March 2018 02:54 PM

    Why not? If it could divert its planes outside its rout to pick up a poweful puppy, why not for a sick passenger?

    Hope UL pays all the hotel bills of the stranded passengers in FRA.

    I recommend Sri Lankan Airlines as a World Class Service Provider.
