SriLankan Airlines will play a vital role in the country’s economic recovery, as the island nation gears up to restart tourism. Sri Lanka’s health and safety situation is now under control, and its national carrier is all set to revive operations. Ashok Pathirage, Chairman, SriLankan Airlines, has claimed that despite the challenges, they are excited about the reopening. “We have been working round the clock to adapt our operations to meet health and safety guidelines, and the challenging requirements of the new normal,” he shares.
In a bid to instil confidence in flying, SriLankan Airlines has implemented extensive protocols for health and safety on board its aircraft and across its terminal facilities as per the guidelines issued by local and global aviation and health & safety organisations such as the ICAO, IATA, EASA, WHO and Sri Lanka’s Ministry of Health and Department of Civil Aviation.
