    All airlines flying to Colombo to file fares with CAA

    The Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has directed all airlines operating to Colombo to file their fares with the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) in an effort to stop ongoing price wars and undercutting.

    The circular with relevant instructions was circulated among the airlines today afternoon, H M C Nimalsiri, DGCA, said. It spelled out that the regulator has observed some undercutting in the market and that the new measure is aimed at redressing the issue. It asks the airlines to file the fares they hope to apply to the Colombo market.

    The CAA hopes now to monitor the market. Respective bilateral air services agreements say that airlines cannot practice fares that drive competitors out of the market. The regulator can take the step of setting fares if compliance is weak but there has been no immediate decision in this regard.

    As it is, CAA is doing a piss poor job upholding their primary mandate, which is to keep the skies and the passengers flying in and out of SL safe.

    Why are they taking on more responsibility and make a mess of that too?

    Let the markets decide the airfares, not the government, especially when the government is also in the business of aviation.

    Talk about conflict of interest!

    Another example of the type of people working at SriLankan - as I've said it's a lost cause.

    The sooner this closes down the better imho.
    Always fly a stable approach - it's the only stability you'll find this business

    Thanks Speedbird for the link

    Boeing, the maker of the 777 and 787 aircrafts, has agreed to lease a combination of 777 and 787 aircraft to Pakistan International Airlines, a tweet by PTV News has claimed.

    We are also hearing rumors that PIA might cancel its wet-lease with Sri Lankan Airline, under which PIA had gotten three A330 aircraft for its premier service.

    Don't you hate it when an article so succinctly describe the contents of a video, yet do not publish a link to it?

    MRC did not fly for past three days. May be thats the bird to leave first.

    Seems like UL890 Is returning to CMB after departure. What's going on?

  10. #7710
    Will the remaining A330-300 scheduled to be leased get cancelled. This could be another blow to the already crippled and ill-fated airline.
    Since the airline has planned to cancel flights to CDG and FRA how are these aircraft's gonna be utilized.

    Any new investor presumably will know how to run the airline properly and utilise the frames profitably. I doubt anyone will invest in UL without installing their own management team in place.

    4R-ALL was returned to Colombo, but perform next flight to Kuwait at 2pm. So was unsure what was the problem. But the aircraft is now operating fine.

    The service will be twice-weekly for the first month of operation with flights on Tuesday and Thursday and will then be increased to thrice-weekly starting from 30th October with a change to flights on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. Flights will depart Colombo at 2010 hours, arrive in Lahore at 2335, depart Lahore at 0035 the next day and arrive in Colombo at 0505
