SriLankan Airlines launches Twice-Daily Flight service between Colombo and Mumbai

SriLankan Airlines Enhances Travel Convenience with Double Daily Flights Between Colombo and Mumbai

SriLankan Airlines has significantly improved travel options for passengers between Colombo and Mumbai by introducing two additional daily flights. This move not only boosts SriLankan’s capacity on the Mumbai route by 50% but also strengthens the airline’s extensive network in India.

The new flight schedule includes daily departures from Mumbai to Colombo at 3:10 and 20:45 hours by flights UL 142 and UL 144, respectively. Flights UL 141 and UL 143 will depart from Colombo to Mumbai at 23:45 and 17:10, respectively.

This expansion not only provides more flexibility for travellers on the Colombo-Mumbai route but also opens up seamless connections through Colombo to popular destinations in the Far East, Europe, and Australia. Passengers departing from Mumbai can now enjoy additional flight options to Colombo and convenient connections to well-known cities such as Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, London, Frankfurt, Paris, Melbourne, and Sydney.

Dimuthu Tennakoon, Head of Worldwide Sales and Distribution at SriLankan Airlines, emphasized the airline’s commitment to the Indian market. Acknowledging India’s growing prominence in the global outbound travel market, Tennakoon expressed the airline’s delight in expanding operations to Mumbai, offering travellers extra-smooth connectivity between Mumbai and Colombo.

In light of Sri Lanka’s recent announcement regarding a complimentary visa for Indian tourists, we are elevating our flight frequency with the optimism that these positive developments will encourage more travellers from Mumbai to explore the beauty of Sri Lanka.

India stands out as the exclusive nation with nine cities integrated into SriLankan Airlines’ network. This comprehensive coverage extends beyond Mumbai, encompassing Delhi, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Kochi, Trivandrum, Chennai, Trichy, and Madurai, collectively offering approximately 100 weekly flights.

The geographical and cultural proximity between India and Sri Lanka creates a sense of familiarity for most Indians. SriLankan Airlines emerges as the preferred choice for those seeking the perfect blend of both worlds during their travels. Passengers can relish the warmth and hospitality characteristic of Sri Lanka and its national carrier, accompanied by delightful Indian vegetarian and non-vegetarian cuisine.
