Seven new codeshare destinations added to SriLankan Network

 

Expanding a long-standing partnership with Malaysia Airlines, SriLankan Airlines extends its network in the Austral-Asian Region adding seven new codeshare destinations in Australia, Vietnam and Malaysia.

To cater to growing demand between Australia and Sri Lanka, SriLankan Airlines will provide daily services to Adelaide, Brisbane and Perth via Kuala Lumpur. Daily connections to Sydney and Melbourne via Kuala Lumpur already exist. With this addition SriLankan will provide code share services to 5 major cities in Australia, stated the SriLankan Airlines.

Additionally, Saigon and Hanoi in Vietnam and the islands of Penang and Langkawi in Malaysia have also been added as code share destinations via Kuala Lumpur.

“SriLankan is consistently looking at improving air connectivity between Sri Lanka and the Austral-Asia Region, which in effect will increase the number of visitors to Sri Lanka. These new code share destinations will further enhance our service to this fast growing region which according to official figures, had the highest growth of tourist traffic of 25.3 per cent in 2013” said Mr. Mohamed Fazeel, SriLankan’s Head of Commercial Operations.

Traffic between Sri Lanka and Vietnam is expected to grow as Vietnam’s socio-economic stability and close cultural ties are increasingly attracting visitors between Vietnam and Sri Lanka, the Airline further said.
