SriLankan Airlines celebrated 37 years of service to the country on September 1 with renewed hope for the future as it continues to revamp its global network, reduce its losses, optimize revenue and move towards profitability.


Multi-religious ceremonies were held to bring blessings on the national carrier, with a Hindu pooja at the Sri Ganapathi Temple in Negombo and a Christian Mass at the Methodist Church in Kurana, Katunayake on September 1, an all-night pirith chanting ceremony on September 2 at SriLankan Airlines’ premises at Bandaranaike International Airport and an Islamic ceremony will be held on September 9 at Ramada Hotel in Colombo.


The airline has provided nearly four decades of continuous service to the country’s travelling public, fast-growing tourism industry, important migrant labour industry and economy as a whole and will continue to serve with renewed vigour and dedication. It is currently rationalizing its route network to optimize its strengths in Asia, from the Middle East to South Asia and the Far East. 


SriLankan Airlines, a member of the prestigious oneworld global airline alliance, has a worldwide network spanning 94 destinations in 44 countries. It has a sophisticated all-Airbus fleet with the most modern comforts, amenities and entertainment systems, coupled with its famed award-winning world-class service of caring and warmth.
