SriLankan Airlines, the first Asian airline to operate the four-engine Airbus A340 aircraft, bid goodbye to the last of its A340s after more than two decades in service, with a final commercial flight yesterday.
SriLankan introduced the A340 on September 1, 1994, at the time when it was the most sophisticated aircraft manufactured by Airbus Industrie. Over this 21-year period, a total of seven A340s have served the airline and were for many years the mainstay of its long-haul fleet.
The national carrier has inducted a brand-new fleet of seven sophisticated A330-300 aircraft, which offer the latest comforts and technology such as mood lighting, on-board Wi-Fi connectivity and the most sophisticated inflight entertainment system.
