SriLankan Airlines has reaffirmed its commitment to Pakistan by launching a fourth weekly flight between Colombo and Lahore effective 31 October 2023, connecting the two cities every Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Thursday with the new addition. SriLankan Airlines also operates four times a week to Karachi, and is the only foreign airline in the Indian Subcontinent to cover Pakistan’s two biggest cities in its network and offer direct services between Pakistan and Sri Lanka.
The frequency boost generates a 20 per cent rise in capacity on the route for an average total of about 900 seats between Colombo and Lahore every week, delivering greater flight options, connections and convenience to customers in Pakistan. SriLankan Airlines’ service to Lahore will be operated by a combination of Airbus A320, A321 and A330 aircraft, and served with a touch of the hospitality and warmth that the airline is famous for.
Dimuthu Tennakoon, Head of Worldwide Sales and Distribution of SriLankan Airlines, stated, “SriLankan Airlines is happy to enhance its services and standing in Pakistan, a country with which Sri Lanka has enjoyed a longstanding bilateral relationship. We are on a continuous quest to make travel seamless for customers, and our customers travelling from Lahore will now have stronger connections to Colombo and SriLankan’s extensive network beyond Colombo in the Maldives, the Far East, Australia and Europe.”
SriLankan Airlines further provides a range of benefits for passengers including special fares for leisure tourists and groups, an additional 10kg baggage allowance for students and free hotel accommodation in Colombo for long transit passengers.
