SriLankan Airlines wants to add Double Daily Flights

SriLankan Airlines is implementing a two-pronged plan that includes flying to three to four additional locations while increasing frequency to important Indian cities.

“First, we want to help clients twice day by increasing frequency. According to Richard Nuttall, CEO of SriLankan Airlines, “you can generate more traffic with [enhanced] frequency.” SriLankan Airlines flies to nine cities: Chennai, Coimbatore, Madurai, Mumbai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Kochi, and Thiruvananthapuram. Chennai is the only city to which the airline flies three times per day.

“All major cities should be double daily. That should help grow traffic coming to Sri Lanka as also beyond, particularly to Australia, Thailand, China and Japan,” he said. Hyderabad is among the cities to which frequency increase is under consideration. From existing six flights a week to Hyderabad “we should be trying to get towards double daily need to be increasing [flights to] Hyderabad,” Nuttall said.

Figuring in SriLankan Airlines plans are also connections to a few more cities. “Three to four cities are on the radar. Probably, the obvious one will be Ahmedabad.. in 12 months,” he said, adding the airlines would like to launch earlier depending on how soon more aircraft augment the fleet. Coimbatore, Kolkata and Visakhapatnam are likely to be other cities to which the carrier will be flying.
