SriLankan Airlines to expand operations to Russia


SriLankan Airlines will expand its operations in Central Asia by increasing the frequency of flights to Moscow, Russia.

The airline will replace the current one-stop flight via Dubai from Colombo to Moscow Domodedovo Airport by a nonstop service from October 29, 2013.

Also the carrier will operate the three flights a week with an Airbus A330-200, instead of current twice a week service on an Airbus A 320.

The airline from October 27, 2013 will trim the Colombo - Dubai service from 9 weekly flights to daily flights. However four of the seven daily flights will be on a wide-bodied Airbus A330-200 instead of an A320.

SriLankan operates a fleet of 22 aircraft - including six wide-bodied A340 and seven A330 aircraft, eight mid-range A320s and one De Havilland Twin Otter floatplanes for domestic operations.

The airline services a global route network of 64 destinations in 34 countries in Europe, the Middle East, South Asia, Southeast Asia, the Far East, North America, Australia and Africa.
