International travellers who are often to be seen in a look out for flights to popular Indian Ocean destination of Sri Lanka with a connection at India have all the reasons to smile.
SriLankan Airlines has introduced additional weekly flights to South India’s popular city of Trivandrum from Colombo.
Sri Lanka’s flag carrier, SriLankan Airlines has enhanced its weekly services between Trivandrum and Colombo from August 30, 2012. The carrier has added three additional flights between the two destinations.

Besides these new services to Trivandrum from Colombo, the carrier had increased its weekly flights twice daily to South India’s popular city of Kochi in the month of May 2012.
Presently, the airline operates 87 weekly flights to India, including the additional flights, connecting at popular Indian cities like Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi, Kochi, Mumbai, Trichy and Trivandrum.
The state owned carrier currently offers flights to 58 global destinations in 33 countries in Europe, North America, Canada, India, the Far East and Middle East. With the additional flights, the airline may soon become one of the best choices for travellers looking for flights to travel to India and beyond.
