SriLankan Airlines has expanded its flight offerings between Colombo and Mumbai, now providing double daily flights to enhance travel convenience for passengers commuting to and from India’s financial and entertainment hub. This augmentation not only increases SriLankan’s capacity on the Mumbai route by 50%, but also fortifies the airline’s extensive network in India.

The newly introduced daily flights, UL 142 and UL 144, will depart from Mumbai to Colombo at 3:10hrs and 20:45hrs, respectively. Similarly, flights UL 141 and UL 143 from Colombo to Mumbai will depart at 23:45hrs and 17:10hrs, respectively. This expanded service offers passengers departing from Mumbai more flexible flight options to Colombo and seamless connections via Colombo to popular destinations in the Far East, Europe, and Australia, including Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, London, Frankfurt, Paris, Melbourne, and Sydney.

Dimuthu Tennakoon, Head of Worldwide Sales and Distribution at SriLankan Airlines, expressed, “The Indian market has been crucial for SriLankan Airlines from the outset, and with India emerging as one of the world’s largest outbound travel markets, we are delighted to extend our operations in Mumbai and facilitate smoother travel between Mumbai and Colombo. Our increased frequency coincides with Sri Lanka’s announcement of free visas for Indian visitors, and we anticipate that these positive developments will encourage more travelers from Mumbai to explore Sri Lanka.”

India stands out as the only country with nine cities included in SriLankan Airlines’ network, encompassing Delhi, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Kochi, Trivandrum, Chennai, Trichy, Madurai, and Mumbai. The airline currently operates nearly 100 flights per week to these destinations. Given the geographical and cultural affinity between the two countries, Sri Lanka offers a familiar and welcoming experience for most Indians. SriLankan Airlines becomes the preferred choice for those seeking a blend of Indian cuisine, both vegetarian and non-vegetarian, coupled with the warmth and hospitality that define the essence of Sri Lanka and its national carrier.

SriLankan Airlines’ exceptional service in the region received recognition at the South Asian Travel Awards (SATA) in Bangalore, India, where the airline was honored with the titles of Leading International Airline – South Asia and Leading Airline Class – Business Class.
