SriLankan acquires brand new A320


SriLankan Airlines acquired a new Airbus A320 last month, expanding its fleet to 23 aircraft. The national carriers fleet now consists of eight medium - range A320s, seven twin-engined wide-body A330s, and six long-haul A 340s, and two De Havilland Twin Otter float-planes for domestic services.

The new aircraft has a seating configuration of 20 Business Class seats and 120 Economy Class seats, and is equipped with sophisticated Inflight Entertainment systems and in-seat AVOD (audio, video on demand) in Business Class and Economy Class, as well as 25 movies, nine TV channels, 25 audio channels and 15 games.

SriLankan is also in the process of completing a major refurbishment programme by the end of this year, transforming the passenger cabins on its existing long-haul fleet of A330s and A340s with flat-bed seats, state of the art audio video on demand (AVOD) entertainment systems and luxurious interiors.
