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.

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.
