May 15, 2024 | Press Release

SriLankan Airlines, the national carrier of Sri Lanka, today announced the opening of a new office in Trivandrum, signifying a strategic partnership with Translanka Air Travels Pvt. Ltd. as the appointed General Sales Agent (GSA) for South Kerala. This initiative underscores the airline’s dedication to expanding its footprint in Southern Kerala and offering improved services to passengers from the regions of Pathanamthitta, Kollam, Varkala, Kovalam, Marthandam, Nagercoil, and Tirunelveli.

Since commencing operations to Trivandrum in April 1980, SriLankan Airlines has consistently provided connections between Trivandrum and Colombo, facilitating access to numerous international destinations, including the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Australia, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Kuwait, Qatar, Maldives, and Singapore, among others. Currently, the airline operates four weekly flights between Trivandrum and Colombo on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays.

“SriLankan Airlines was among the first international carriers to establish flights to Trivandrum 44 years ago. It has been a privilege to serve the people of Southern Kerala and Trivandrum, connecting them to the world with our comprehensive flight services and genuine Sri Lankan hospitality. I am confident that this new partnership will enable us to elevate our service standards further,” remarked Dimuthu Tennakoon, Head of Worldwide Sales and Distribution, SriLankan Airlines.

Sri Lanka remains a favored destination for residents of South Kerala and Trivandrum, driven by the proximity and cultural affinities between the regions. The growing influx of Indian tourists to Sri Lanka highlights its appeal, offering unique sights, cuisine, and experiences that resonate with Keralites.

The new office and partnership with Translanka Air Travels aim to bolster service delivery for customers in South Kerala and Trivandrum. The office inauguration was attended by prominent figures including Dimuthu Tennakoon, Fawzan Fareid, Regional Manager for India, Bangladesh, and Nepal; Sandun Jayasinghe, Area Manager Trivandrum; and B.
