British Airways has decided to resume its operations in Sri Lanka. The airline in a recent press conference told the media that it has resumed its flights to Sri Lanka nearly after 15 years of hiatus from April 14, 2013.
BA will fly every Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays between London Gatwick Airport and Colombo international Airport via Male International Airport. British Airways will be using Boeing 777-200 passenger jet on this route and will be offering air tickets to passengers under three different classes.
Regional Commercial Manager South Asia, Christopher Fordyce said, over the past few years Sri Lanka has become a popular travel destination. It has grown as a powerful magnetic force, attracting leisure and business travelers. He also mentioned said that since Britain is the second highest contributor towards Sri Lankan tourism after India, hence this is the most logical decision to further boost our business.
