Sri Lanka’s national airline, SriLankan Airlines has enhanced its frequency of flights between Muscat, Oman and Colombo to daily from December 21, 2013. The move is sure to please fliers looking for tickets to travel on the popular sector.


International flyers who regularly seek tickets on scheduled flights between Oman and Colombo have been rewarded by the national carrier of Sri Lanka, SriLankan Airlines. The carrier recently increased its frequency of flights between Muscat, Oman and Sri Lanka’s Colombo.

The enhanced frequency will now allow flyers to grab tickets for daily services between the two destinations. Previously, the airline only offered tickets for five weekly flights between Muscat-Colombo.

The airline is believed to have increased its flights frequency due to the increasing number of tourists who are often seen looking for air tickets to travel on the ever-popular Oman-Sri Lanka route. The airline is hopeful that with the increased frequency, more number of tourists will spend on air tickets from Oman to holiday in Sri Lanka.

“By increasing the frequency, we extend to Omanis an invitation to travel to Sri Lanka for an ideal holiday getaway or to find an investment opportunity. With the latest addition, the SriLankan Airlines also offers a convenient solution to the passengers travelling to India who wish to make trips on the side to the Far East”, said SriLankan Airlines’ Manager for Oman, Lakshman Weerasooriya.

SriLankan Airlines is also planning to increase its frequencies to many other airports in the Middle Eastern region to boost tourism. The Indian Ocean destination of Sri Lanka has become one of the most sought after tourist destinations and thousands from across the globe including Omani nationals are often to be seen in a lookout for air tickets to the country for holidays.

Besides Oman, the airlines also offers tickets on direct/indirect flights to Kuwait, Dammam, Riyadh, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Bahrain, Doha, Jeddah, Amman, and Sharjah in the Middle Eastern region.

Operating its fleet of 21 aircraft including wide-bodied A340 and A330 aircraft and mid-range A320s, SriLankan Airlines offers tickets on scheduled flights to around 75 cities, as of now.
