    Despite worsening situation, SriLankan retains same aviation consultant

    SriLankan Airlines has retained the same international aviation consultant from whom it commissioned a partial restructuring plan last year to draw up yet another proposal to turn the ailing company around. Of the 2016 contract, Nyras says on its website that it was assigned “to carry out strategic options review of viability and opportunities for SriLankan Airlines, a State-owned flag carrier”.

    “The Sri Lankan Government had set a requirement for the business to deliver break-even profitability within two years, and the airline asked Nyras to help address issues with both financial performance and excess future aircraft orders,” it said. It was based on Nyras’ recommendation that SriLankan cancelled the A350s order of the previous administration, authoritative sources said.

    Ajith Dias doesn't want to release details on the aircraft leases. Wonder why?

    Doesn't seem to be any rush to investigate how UL could be allowed to get into the current mess. Or who pocketed the commissions whilst destroying the airline.

    AirAsia Sri Lanka – Coming Soon

    A proposal has come before the cabinet of ministers to launch a budget airline.The proposal was submitted through a joint cabinet paper from Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and Tourism Development Minister, John Amaratunga.

    The Joint Cabinet Paper submitted on November 15, proposes the establishment of a budget airline ‘AirAsia Sri Lanka’, under the Malaysia-based AirAsia Group.

    The airline will service from Colombo, Jaffna, Hambantota and will expand operations to other South Asian countries.The airline will then extend services to China and ASEAN countries before expanding to Africa and the Middle East in the final phase of implementation.

    Plans have been made to purchase 24 A320 aircrafts for AirAsia Sri Lanka, within its first five years of operation.The cabinet paper states that within its first five years of operation, it will be able to bring 9.6 million tourists to the country.

    The cabinet paper further states, tourists can be attracted to Sri Lanka through AirAsia’s 12 million Facebook fans, six million twitter followers and 110,000 YouTube subscribers.

    In their cabinet paper, the Prime Minister and Minister John Amaratunga also note that in several countries budget airlines and full service airlines work together.

    Furthermore, the paper cites Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia, India, Vietnam and Philippines as examples.The cabinet paper states, full service airlines and budget carriers function in the same environment in these countries.

    The paper seeks authorisation to hold talks with AirAsia on the necessary skills, provisions and other operational affairs.

    Authorisation has been sought for these talks to be carried out by the Ministry of National Policies and Economic Affairs – a portfolio held by the Prime Minister, and the Department of Civil Aviation.

    Up to now everyone has been very good at doing absolutely nothing. The only thing that will change between now and the end of March is that a further $20 - $30 Million will be added to the debt imho.

    Even if they lay off 50% of the staff it still won't appreciably change the situation. Not that I expect this to happen.

    The fact that they have hired consultants says enough about the level of competency at the management level.

    British consultants tasked with salvaging SriLankan Airlines yesterday presented their first report to the Ministerial Committee headed by Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe, expressing confidence in restructuring and finding a partner airline to turn the national carrier around, a top Government official revealed.

    The Nyras Consulting Company specialising in the global aviation sector, which was hired by the Government to advise it on initiating a restructuring program and securing an investor for the troubled national carrier, presented its preliminary report yesterday outlining the broad framework for restructuring. “The consultant was very positive about the restructuring and turning the airline around and finding a partner,” a top ministry official who declined to be quoted told the Daily FT.
