The Government is holding informal discussions with Emirates to partner our national carrier SriLankan, State Minister of Finance, Eran Wickramaratne told a media briefing today.

He said Emirates was one of several airlines with which the government had begun informal discussions for teaming up with Srilankan.

“Mind you no airline will invest even a dollar in Srilankan airlines prior to formal discussion,” the state minister said.

He said there were some other airlines showing some kind of interest in negotiations and would be talking to them as well.

The state minister said the ultimate result of any negotiation would be based on a public-private- partnership. (Yohan Perera)

    what we need is someone who will invest in sri lankan and then make a profit. not someone who is after our routes.

    Emirates, You tried once,Did a wonderful job, and were treated as invaders and left, because a man wanted to take all the seats to see his son. As the agreement was finished you pulled a great deal, you got landing rights, more worth than anything else, we now have your wonderful airline serving here to most places in the world. You also have the best Colombo Airport lounge,best staff. Please, walk away from any deal.
