    What's the airline that carries the most amount of Pax out of CMB after UL? EK or QR?

    In my opinion Lufthansa or its subsidery airline should serve the flights between Germany and Colombo. Before Colombo Airport attack in 2001, UL used to serve 4 weekly on FRA-CMB, DE used to serve 2 weekly on FRA-CMB, 1 weekly MUC-CMB, 1 weekly DUS-CMB and 1 weekly TXL-CMB.

    I think now LH can serve FRA-CMB with three weekly A330-300.

    Emirates has 22 Weekly flights connecting CMB to DXB and a daily schedule from CMB to SIN with 5th freedom flights also to MLE en-route to DXB and vice-versa all on their 777's
    While QR operated 3 flights per day operated on their A346 (total of 21 flights per week)

    So basically EK has the highest yield flying in and out of CMB QR would come in second and AK would probably come in 3rd with 10 flights weekly, why AK would be in third is that they operate both A320's and A330's to CMB compared to MH which operate 10 flights themselves but on their 737-800's

    Correct me if im wrong

    EK is operating 27 weekly nonstop flights from DXB to CMB, 7 weekly flights DXB to CMB via MLE and 7 weekly flights from SIN to CMB . All onboard B777.

    QR is operating 21 weekly from DOH to CMB with A346. QR also has a few all freighter service out of CMB.

    FZ is operating 27 weekly from DXB to CMB with B737. Some of the inbound and outbound flights are via MLE and HRI.

    Completely forgot about FZ and SQ's increase to 10 flights a week on their A333's

    How many carriers operate their 787's to CMB as of now?

    QR did in the past for a short period of time and currently KLM and LOT utilize them
    Anyone else?

    Thomson Airways sends B787-8 to CMB from LGW every Tuesdays. Addionally Thomson Airways is going to operate B787-9 to CMB from Stockholm and Helsinki from December 2016.I didn't see LOT is flying CMB this Winter 2016. Any idea? Travel Service Airlines was sending a charter with B737 from Warsaw for Colombo via Bahrain few weeks ago. But the Travel Service Airlines B737 was diverted to MCT due to techinical issue and it didn't finally fly to CMB. All those passengers were sent from MCT to CMB onboard Oman Air. On that occasion, Oman Air was flying CMB with B787-8 to carry more Travel Service Airlines's passengers. Oman Air currently use B737 to CMB on their double daily flights.

    LH Operates MAA, BLR, BOM and DEL
    This is 2016 and not early 2000...Indian airports have improved a lot and Jet Fuel price in CMB has gone up considerably
    CMB is getting very uneconomical to operate...
    AC is expanding Indian operation and Maxed out in DXB...so why does AC needs to codeshare with a oneworld partner UL

    Saudia Airbus A330 in CMB

    Any Idea why SV Operated an A330-200 to CMB today? The route is generally served by its Boeing 777-200ER. FR24 shows that another similar flight is scheduled for the 11th of December.

    Hi Aaqib, It's a charter service for umrah pilgrims, operating every Thursdays and Sundays from Indonesia to Sri Lanka. Then the pilgriums will be moved to Medina and Jeddah on the SriLankan and Saudia flights. I think SV2710 came from Jeddah to Colombo to take the umrah pilgrims to Medina. Saudia wet-leased the A332 plane from Onur Air to operate the SV2710 today. I think one of the ex-SriLankan A332 is also now with Onur Air.

    Thanks for the info mate. I think OnurAir is operating the ex-UL A330-200 (4R-ALG) for SV if im not mistaken,I recall seeing it on YouTube in a similar white livery at HYD
