Sri Lanka’s national carrier, SriLankan Airlines will start its new daily flight between Muscat and Colombo from April 7.

The flight will depart from Colombo at 7.20 pm and arrive in Muscat at 9.55 pm. It will depart from Muscat at 11.05 pm and arrive in Colombo at 4.55 am. This takes the frequency from five times a week to daily flight a week.

"We are thrilled to launch daily operations between Oman and Sri Lanka. This will give our customers increased connectivity," Country manager of SriLankan Airlines Deepal Pallegangoda said.

SriLankan Airlines will also increase frequencies to India this summer by starting flights to Visakhapatnam, Hyderabad, Coimbatore, Gaya and Varanasi from July 17.

SriLankan Airlines will resume normal operations throughout its global route network from April 7, following the resumption of full services at Colombo’s Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA), which had been partially closed for three months while its runway underwent resurfacing.

This summer SriLankan Holidays will offer attractive holiday packages to Sri Lanka, Male, Gan Island, Bangkok, Malaysia and China.
