    SriLankan Airlines in a statement yesterday denied the Daily FT report published on 24 May 2017 stating that the airline intends to increase ground handling charges by 30%.

    It said the reality was that the rates in existence at Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA) since 1997 would be continuing. What has been initiated however, is a process that streamlines ground handling charges with individual airline as per services defined in the Standard Ground Handling Agreement (SGHA).
    No no UL is not increasing any thing just streamlining...AKA management fluff or BS

    Herein there would be a few airlines who enjoyed concessions to the published rates based on previous negotiations quoting reciprocity (where that airline provides ground handling services to SriLankan at their home-base and SriLankan provides ground handling services to them in Colombo) having to pay more as a result of such benefit ceasing to exist for SriLankan.
    That's because there are other's UL referring to in West Asia and SE Asia have much better facilities compared to CMB

    In the same way, there are other airlines that are to benefit with reductions to charges due to published concessions based on volume as well as more services being added.
    Yes it is called volume discount. you buy more you get better discount...nothing unusual here

    Therefore, it would be grossly incorrect to quote an increase in rates based on a few airlines losing concessions as a result of changes in the business contours.
    AKA management fluff or BS

    The fact that ground handling rates have remained unchanged since 1997 is to be noted in the context of SriLankan being the sole ground handler at BIA. Also to be appreciated is the fact that Colombo›s ground handling rates remain [B]competitive when compared with other stations in the region that have the presence of a sole handler.
    Yes ground handling charge has remained unchanged since 1997. but UL charge ground handling charges in USD. So let me get this straight who get the benefit of SLR currency devaluation.

    and finally you comparing ground handling charges with other monopolies in the region?...that must be very hard compete against right?


    It is also untrue to state that Colombo›s ground handling rates have deterred airlines from operating to Sri Lanka, as the cost considered here is a small share of an airline’s direct operating cost;
    it is part of the cost which is handed over to customer ticket including departure tax which is around USD50+ and CPC Jet A1...when you add up all the cost Colombo is very expensive

    hence having little or no influence over an airline’s decision to serve a specific destination. Furthermore, Colombo sees new operators commencing services to BIA every season, whilst the regular operators keep increasing frequencies.
    Why did the BA pulled out? and except for some West Asian carrier who are uplifting fuel from home base there are almost nil any European carriers operating to CMB

    Editor›s Note: Daily FT stands by its report.
    So does the readers

    Hi Folks

    Srilankan will be operating A321 neo to hkg sector from July, CX operates A333 with flat bed business class.
    If ULA321Neo has Same J class seats as A320neo will be a bad idea,
    Personally I will not be flying

    Any thoughts

    Very recently I was reading the news about SriLankan Airlines. It tells SriLankan is going to have 14 x A320/1 aircraft and 10 x A330 aircraft by the end of this year. Do you know the rego of 4 x A330s are going to leave the fleet this year?

    Also a couple of news websites says SriLankan hasn't sold the slots of Rome, Frankfurt and Paris. They have plans to return Frankfurt.

    This will be a good move since the most of the europeans are keeping away from turkey and Egypt due to political issues and which are huge markets for tourism.

    Really? This aircraft is only around 3 years old and it has to undergo C-check. What is the time period between service intervals and is there are special reasons for it to increase or decrease(time period between services)

    SriLankan Chairman said they are in the process of retiring the larger ones. I am curious to know the registrations of A330 going to leave the SriLankan fleet this year?

    SriLankan Airlines is planning a new flights to Vietnam.
    Any idea about which will be the next new destination in Vietnam ? Ha Noi or Saigon ?
    Do you think Vietnam will be the profitable route for SriLankan Airlines?
