    Is there any changes in management of the SriLankan Airlines very recently ?

    I was reading the news about SriLankan Airlines increasing the Bahrain and Muscat flights with Daily flights from May 2017. SriLankan Airlines COO, Mr. Siva Ramachandran was giving the interview to the media this time. CEO Mr.Suren Ratwette or Chairman Mr.Ajith Dias usually do these interviews to the media. This is a first time COO is coming to the media interview. COO is also said SriLankan have 80% average passenger load on Muscat flights and they are looking at starting a new destination in Salalah in the future.

    What's your opinion about SriLankan COO Mr. Siva Ramachandran? Is he suitable for the role?

    Operating to Salalah is a pretty stupid idea just like Gan
    They should look to increase capacity to Muscat preferably to a daily flight
    I'm at CMB at the moment waiting for my flight to MCT will update on the load factor and the feasibility operating a daily connection

    Salalah has a big work force of indian, Like kochi,chennai,trivandarupuram flights will be full
    currently air india express caters, i think srilankan can catch that market
    also lots of indonesian working over there,
    its a good move..

    The number I have is 45 and it's Captain and FO. I commented on this previously.

    Translation:- We can't find any serious candidates and we have no idea what to do now.

    As I stated previously - another EPIC FAIL.

    Here's an idea Ravi K - close it down asap.
    Always fly a stable approach - it's the only stability you'll find this business

    Sri Lanka may consider other options for Sri Lankan Airlines

    Sri Lanka may consider other transparent options to find a partner for state-run SriLankan Airlines if the government decides that proposals made so far can be bettered, Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake said.

    "We are currently in talks. I think we may have to look at this more broadly,"

    "We are looking at the proposals made by several companies," Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake told reporters.

    " If we think we can get proposals that are not good enough and better options are possible, we may broaden the process. It will be through a transparent process."

    Sri Lanka called expressions of interest to find a partner for SriLankan Airlines before the end of 2016, but no decision has been announced so far.

    The government has said it was willing to take off most of the legacy debt of the airlines acquired to finance losses made after ex-President Mahinda Rajapasksa terminated a management contract with Emirates.

    LATAM announced in mid-July an agreement in which Qatar Airways would buy 10 percent of the company via the issuance of new shares, with a payment of $10 per share. In the final deal, Qatar purchased 60.8 million LATAM shares, the company said.

    “The entrance of Qatar Airways into the ownership (of LATAM) is an opportunity to develop a long-term relationship and explore new opportunities for connectivity with Asia and the Middle East,” LATAM said in a statement.

    It is getting weirder by the minute

    http://www.economynext.com/Bidder_fo...-3-7122-6.html

    A bidder for Sri Lanka's loss-making national airline on Thursday promised to appease Lord Murugan and conduct daily rituals if they are given a controlling stake in the airline and the Mattala airport.

    .......
    ......
    ...
    He said he is in talks with Malaysia airlines to buy six A380 double decker aircraft to run Peace Air parallel to Sri Lankan. However, Peace Air does not posses a licence to operate air services, but Wethasinghe said it would be a formality before he got it


    What next? Voodoo and witchcraft to make the debt disappear? Someone needs to admit these people to Angoda very soon.
