    Hello Guys,

    Im new to this forum and this is my first post. I d have some wishful thinking but let me put it out for discussion purposes...

    Is UL still launching flights to KOchi on March 1st 2011? If not whats the latest update on that?

    I see that the Chairman and CEO havle plans for the carrier.. Any plans on them re starting and launching flights to Madurai, Coiambatore, Kozhikode, Ahamedabad, Pune, Kolkata? May be connect these cities to the middle east via CMB before Fly Dubai and Co. gets approval to start these routes.. If possible try into other tier 2 cities in India

    Seoul is good idea, Id like to see Tokyo Handea, and more flights to Narita..

    May be connect Jakarta, Dhaka, KUL and Singapore and launch flights into Burnei into the European flights at night.. increase freq using the new A320's.

    Id love to see Mauritius and Seychelles along with Nairobi..

    ZRH, GVA, MUC , MAN... Maybe get more RR powered A330's to launch these routes...

    HA HA HA.. Like i said im just doing a wishful thinking.. but what do you guys think???

    @ Freqflyer - Welcome to the Sri Lanka Aviation Forum SriLankan's Kochi flight has now been postponed to 8th March 2011. Addtionally gulf point of point networks planned, CMB-DOH, CMB-BAH, CMB-MCT also been postponed to 27 March 2011 from Feb 2011. I believe there is a delay of getting MSN2569 : 4R-ABL, which is still in operation with Jazzeera Airways as reg : 9K-CAA. http://data.flight24.com/airplanes/9k-caa/ . I will update when any changes take place.

    Yes, SriLankan has plans of introducing Madurai in its network, According to this news (http://www.hindu.com/2010/11/20/stor...2063530300.htm). I think Madurai might be launched after SriLankan receive the brandnew CFM engined MSN4694 the A320-214.

    SriLankan is already codesharing with Mihin Lanka on 3 weekly Colombo to Jakarta flights. I doubt SriLankan itself will launch the Jakarta flights. Does any body know how Mihin's Colombo - Jakarta flight is performing ? see the picture of Mihin Lanka A320 in Jakarta. I surprise how this A320 (4R-MRB) flown upto 4hr 50 mins.

    Yes, Zurich is a good idea for SriLankan. But SriLankan is currently looking to launch flights to Moscow. Not sure Domodedovo (DME) or Sheremetyevo (SVO). I will update more details soon.

    See the good looking website of SriLankan's FlySmiles : http://www.flysmiles.com/

    Does any body know why still Guangzhou Flight Schedule is still missing in www.srilankan.aero. According to Amadeus, 1st flight to Guangzhou on the 28th Jan 2011. In just 5 days from today

    Don't think they can make most of the routes work. I am also not confident that they'll launch MOW. CAN not appearing online is an example of the airline's ignorance. And 320 can fly 4h 50min. But I believe this route needs ETOPS, hence may take longer and incur a payload penalty.

    Hi guys,

    There is a thread on Airliners.net abt Srilankan in discussion with ILFC about the 6th A340-300..

    http://www.airliners.net/aviation-fo....main/5047592/

    Any one got any leads as to the latest info on that?

    Y more A340-300's? There are 2 more A330-200's parked that were former livingston Engergy flight's Aircrafts. They could pick those up instead of bringing another A340...

    What else do they have on the fleet upgrade plans??? any body got more info??? I know 1 more used A320 and 3 Brand new ones coming into the fleet.. any other than that??

    MSN 381 is 10 year old ..... hope they can find a newer birds......passengers are already complaining about aging fleet.

    While I dislike the A340 from an economics point of view and believe that UL is better off with 330s, I'm sure this has been a sweet deal. They were looking for a widebody to aid Moscow launch. Although they've got two more 320s already planned for delivery. So does anybody know whether this is for expansion or replacement ? A delivery next month is in very short notice and an expansion is indeed not reflected in reservation. This should be 4R-ADG. Quite sad if it'll be 4R-ADA, Asia's first A340, that is leaving. Has many nice memories with it.

    SriLankan Airlines 1st Flight to Guangzhou



    SriLankan Airlines’ first flight to the Chinese city of Guangzhou took place in the early hours of Friday, January 28, 2011, expanding our global route network to 50 destinations in 31 countries. We bring you scenes at Bandaranaike International Airport moments before the flight, with religious ceremonies taking place at the Araliya Lounge. Those on board the first flight include Chairman Nishantha Wickremasinghe, several members of the Board of Directors, and members of the Senior Management Team.

    Nice to see another 343 in our fleet.... any plans to replace our ADA,ADB? Hope not sooner? Coz South East Asia's 1st bird is ADA

  16. #16
    Well the following site says that SriLankan will replace its A343 fleet from the end of 2010 with newer A343s (which seems to indicate that ADA will be replaced). That said UL's plans change a lot and it may need another widebody to expand its long haul flights.

    BTW sorry I took so long to join this forum, been quite busy since December.

    @umedhah @longranger ADA is Asia's 1st. And ADB,C 2nd and 3rd. All existing five are presently on sked up to April. ILFC has not disclosed a delivery date.

    Thanks, Kflyer. I have found the picture of 4R-ADG (http://www.planespotting.net/fleetli...0-300&r=117020) on Planespotting.net, which was taken in 2004. What actually happened to this aircraft now ? As far as I know SriLankan Airlines has A340s on regs : ADA, ADB, ADC, ADE and ADF. Unfortunately ADD destroyed in Terrorism.

    Probably this is 4R-ADC where C looks like G due to some artifact in the picture. ADG was never recorded in the history except this one place.
