    Why are not utilising A330-300. Why using old A330-200.

    Can anyone confirm what exactly is the reason 4R-ALN and 4R-ABQ are inactive

    I don't think it's a C - Check this early for 4R-ALN

    As for my assumption Maybe because of range difference and payload limitations. The A330-200 is a long haul aircraft where as the A330-300 is more suited to short to medium haul. Maybe even because the A330-300 are utilized for high density flights to the middle east, Japan and parts of India.
    But then even when UL uses the A330-300 to LHR they should be just fine to MEL and for me personally I think that using an old A330-200 on a 10H+ flight would be unpleasant because right now 4H+ flight on these old birds are best avoided even though UL has done extensive refurbishment on These aircrafts.
    Technical guys just clarify me if the A330-300 has any ETOPS problem flying the CMB-MEL route. Other aircraft types that take the same flight path are 77H,77L,789 and A388.

    Do you know why these aircraft are not flying ? Do you know if any A330 leaving the SriLankan fleet this year and next year? Any updates on painting ex Mihin Lanka fleet?

    Thank you
    Hello,

    ALN was undergoing a 1C check and should be returned to service by now i guess. Well I have no idea about the ABQ though.
    Far as I know, we are not retiring any A330s for the time being... But some A320/1 will be retired (most likely the ex MJ aircrafts). but not in less than 6 months.

    cheers

    SriLankan launches Colombo-Melbourne nonstop beginning in October

    Travellers will have a nonstop option between Australia and Sri Lanka from October when SriLankan Airlines commences Melbourne-Colombo flights with Airbus A330-200s.

    SriLankan said the inaugural service would take off on October 29 2017, with Melbourne chosen for its first Australian destination as about half of all Sri Lankans who live in Australia reside in Victoria.

    “Given the number of Sri Lankans residing in and around Victoria, we fulfil a long felt need for a direct service,” SriLankan chief executive Captain Suren Ratwatte said in a statement on Monday.

    The daily flight has been scheduled an overnight service from Colombo, arriving in Melbourne in the afternoon the next day. The return flight is scheduled to takeoff from Tullamarine in early evening, for a late night arrival in the Sri Lankan capital.

    The are no airlines flying nonstop between Australia and Sri Lanka.

    Currently, SriLankan serves Australia one-stop through Kuala Lumpur or Singapore thanks to codeshares with fellow oneworld alliance members Malaysia Airlines and Qantas, respectively.

    SriLankan chief commercial officer Siva Ramachandran said there had been a “steady increase” in passengers travelling between Australia and Sri Lanka on one-stop itineraries.

    “Our direct services will give us a definite advantage as SriLankan is the only carrier that is able to offer connectivity of this nature at this time,” Ramachandran said.

    “We also offer seamless onward connections beyond Colombo to a range of destinations in the Indian sub-continent and Middle East.”

    Australia’s High Commissioner to Sri Lanka Bryce Hutchesson congratulated SriLankan for launching the new route.

    “Direct air connections between countries stimulate two-way tourism, business, trade and people-to-people exchange which are the core ingredients for a vibrant bilateral relationship,” Hutchesson said.
