SriLankan Airlines, the National Carrier of Sri Lanka and a member of the oneworld alliance, in the wake of its relaunch of operations between Paris and Colombo, became the official airline partner of the renowned adventure trail, Raid Amazones 2022, an annual sporting event that features a large number of French female athletes competing their way to victory through multiple sports events/activities in the backdrop of an iconic tourist destination.

The first leg will take place from March 13-23, 2022 and the second leg, from March 27- April 6, 2022 respectively, with an overall estimated participation of over 550, including athletes and officials.

One of the most sought-after sporting events among the French, the format of the event is that a large number of teams in smaller groups take part in a range of adventure challenges, such as orienteering, canoeing, riding, running, archery etc., which test their endurance, team spirit, and resilience.

Every year, the event features an attractive tourist destination whereby its inherent features, such as citizen’s way of life, ecological beauty and culture are prominently showcased to the world through global media that follow the athletes in their trail.
