History[edit] Air Lanka[edit]

Air Lanka Lockheed L-1011 TriStar
Lockheed L-1011 TriStar
at Brussels Airport

Air Lanka was established as the flag carrier of Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka
once the Sri Lankan government shut down the bankrupt Air Ceylon.[13] Air Lanka's initial fleet consisted of two Boeing 707, leased from Singapore Airlines. One Boeing 737
Boeing 737
was leased from Maersk Air and maintained by Air Tara. On 24 April 1980, the lease ended; Air Lanka received a replacement Boeing 737
Boeing 737
leased from Royal Brunei. On 1 November 1980, Air Lanka commenced wide-body operations with a leased Lockheed L1011-1 Tristar from Air Canada. On 15 April 1982, Air Lanka received its own L1011 Tristar purchased from All Nippon Airways. With the introduction of Tristar aircraft, the Boeing 707s were phased out and sold. Then another L1011 was leased from Air Canada
Air Canada
whilst the third L1011 was purchased from All Nippon. On 1 May 1982, HAECO
HAECO
took over the maintenance of the two Air Lanka-owned Tristars, while Air Canada
Air Canada
maintained two leased Tristars. On 28 March 1980, Air Lanka signed a purchase agreement for two brand new Lockheed L1011-500 Tristars, the most advanced wide-body aircraft in the world at that time. The first Lockheed L1011-500 (4R-ULA) was accepted on 26 August 1982, at Palmdale, California. It was flown to Amsterdam as UL flight 566P. On 28 August 4R-ULA "City Of Colombo" left for its inaugural flight from Amsterdam to Colombo
Colombo
as UL566. It reached Colombo
Colombo
on 29 August. This was followed by second Lockheed L1011-500, 4R-ULB, "City Of Jayawardanapura". On 8 June 1984 the airline received its first Boeing 747-200B
Boeing 747-200B
"King Vijaya" and the second joined later. The aircraft were used on flights to Europe
Europe
and a few flights to southeast Asia. Rebranding[edit] Air Lanka, which was state-owned, was partially privatized in 1998, with investment by Dubai-based Emirates Group, when Emirates and the Sri Lankan government signed an agreement for a ten-year strategic partnership. This agreement included exclusive rights for all aircraft ground handling and airline catering at Colombo-Bandaranaike airport for a ten-year period. Emirates bought a 40% stake worth US$70 million (which it later increased to 43.6%) in Air Lanka, and sought to refurbish the airline's image and fleet. The government retained a majority stake in the airline, but gave full control to Emirates for investment and management decisions. In 1998, the Air Lanka re-branded to SriLankan Airlines.[14]

SriLankan acquired 6 Airbus
Airbus
A330-200s to complement its fleet of Airbus A340-300
Airbus A340-300
and A320-200 aircraft. The A330-200 aircraft joined the airline between October 1999 and July 2000. The company’s fourth A340-300 arrived at Colombo
Colombo
painted in the airline’s new corporate livery. SriLankan upgraded its existing A340 fleet into a two-class configuration (business and economy class) whilst overhauling the interior to reflect the new corporate image. The airline gradually increased its number of destinations with more additions for regional markets, notably India
India
and the Middle East. Whilst continuing expansion in the region, SriLankan commenced flying to Jeddah, its third destination in Saudi Arabia, after Riyadh
Riyadh
and Dammam, thus increasing the number of destinations in the Middle East to nine. Jeddah
Jeddah
became the airline's 51st destination overall.

In 2008, Emirates notified the Sri Lankan Government that it would not renew its management contract,[15] which then expired on 31 March 2008. It claimed that the Sri Lankan Government was seeking greater control over the day-to-day management of the airline.[16] Emirates sold its 43.63% stake in the airline to the Government of Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka
in a deal that was finalized in 2010, thus ending any affiliations the two airlines had with each other.[17] The flight attendant uniform remained unchanged from the days of Air Lanka until February 2010, when a new uniform was introduced based on its previous uniform design.[18] SriLankan (and Air Lanka) mainly uses country's national dress, "Osariya" as the uniform for its female staffs (Stewardess & ground staff) whilst males were given the usual western black suit, during airlanka's days it was red in color. The designs are based on the patterns of Peacock which also used for its livery. In recognition of its high standard of service, SriLankan Airlines has been a holder of the Imperial Mark.[19] Modern era[edit]

In 2008 when Emirates pulled out, the accumulated profit of SriLankan was Rs. 9.288 billion in that financial year. From 2008 to 2015, when the government administration ran it, the loss for the seven years was Rs. 128.238 billion (US$875 million).[20][21] Following the ownership transfer, SriLankan took the decision to promote Colombo
Colombo
as a hub for flights to Asia.[22] The first destination of the expansion plan was Shanghai, China; the route was initiated on 1 July 2010.[23] The airline commenced flights to Guangzhou, China
Guangzhou, China
on 28 January 2011.[24] SriLankan joined the Oneworld
Oneworld
alliance on 1 May 2014. During 2014 it started to renew and increase its fleet, with purchases of Airbus
Airbus
A330 & A350 models. Currently, SriLankan operates an all- Airbus
Airbus
fleet with exception for its Air-taxi services. SriLankan phased out their last Airbus A340-300
Airbus A340-300
on 7 January 2016 with its last scheduled flight from Chennai
Chennai
to Colombo. The airline terminated three European routes – Frankfurt, Paris and Rome – by end 2016. The airline absorbed the operations of sister carrier Mihin Lanka
Mihin Lanka
in October 2016, in a bid to create a single stronger national airline for Sri Lanka. Accordingly, SriLankan took over two of Mihin Lanka's aircraft and absorbed all of its route network. This move added ten new destinations to SriLankan's route network. In October 2017, SriLankan launched direct daily non-stop flights to Melbourne, Australia, its first new long haul route in over five years and the most ambitious expansion to date. The flights restore a regular direct air link between Australia and Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka
after a hiatus of 16 years[25]. Corporate affairs[edit] Livery[edit]

1947 – 1979 

1979 – 1998 

1998 – Present 

The initial livery consisted of red stripes on a white fuselage, the tail being a solid red and sporting the corporate logo, a stylised vimana locally known as 'dandu monara', the flying machine of the mythical king of Lanka, Ravana.[26] This was the sole livery of the airline for nearly two decades, from January 1979 to October 1998. After SriLankan Airlines
SriLankan Airlines
began a decade-long partnership with Emirates, the livery was changed into a much simpler one, with an all-white fuselage, covered by blue 'SriLankan' titles, and the tail adorned with the corporate logo. In May 2014, an Airbus
Airbus
A330 in special Oneworld
Oneworld
livery was delivered to commemorate the airline's establishment as a Oneworld
Oneworld
member. Newly delivered aircraft are adorned with a redesigned livery accompanying a blue underbelly slogan promoting Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka
as a tourist destination.

Pakistan
and southern India. The Airbus A340-300
Airbus A340-300
aircraft were ordered during the time of President Premadasa, the first A340 was delivered in 1994. The airline was the first in Asia to use the A340. The Airbus A330-200 aircraft were delivered during the rule of President Chandrika. In 2012, during the time of President Rajapakse, SriLankan Airlines aimed to boost its fleet to 35 aircraft over the next five years, and had talks with both Airbus
Airbus
and Boeing regarding a deal.[36] SriLankan's former CEO Kapila Chandrasena stated that the carrier wanted to add either Airbus A330-300
Airbus A330-300
or Boeing 777
Boeing 777
aircraft to its fleet to replace its Airbus
Airbus
A340-300s, with deliveries beginning in 2013–2014.[37] In April 2013, it was announced that SriLankan Airlines
SriLankan Airlines
had won government approval to acquire four Airbus
Airbus
A350-900 and seven A330-300 aircraft, with deliveries of the A330-300
A330-300
starting from October 2014.[38] Deliveries for the ordered A350-900s are set to commence in 2019. A further three Airbus
Airbus
A350-900s were leased, with deliveries of these aircraft starting in 2017.[38] SriLankan phased out its last Airbus A340-300
Airbus A340-300
on 7 January 2016, replaced by the A330-300
A330-300
and the future A350-900.[39] As of January 2016, construction of the airline's first Airbus
Airbus
A350-900 has started.[40] On 23 February 2015, SriLankan Airlines
SriLankan Airlines
finalized a deal with Air Lease Corporation
Air Lease Corporation
and AerCap to acquire two Airbus
Airbus
A321neo aircraft, one from each leasing firm.[35] On 10 May 2016, due to financial difficulties the airline announced it would sell four new Airbus
Airbus
A350s, two weeks after cancelling an order for four other A350 aircraft.[41] Services[edit] Cabin[edit] SriLankan offers full flat bed seats on all of its long haul fleet with Audio Video on Demand (AVOD) facilities. The fully flat bed seat offers a 19.5 inches wide seat that can be reclined into a 180 degree 79 inches long bed. Each seat has a 15-inch personal IFE system. SriLankan's newest fleet additions will feature Thales Avant IFE, which features modern entertainment features and extended business class seats. Its A330-300

Its hub is at Bandaranaike International Airport.[47] SriLankan Catering's main line of business is in-flight catering to airlines that operate to Bandaranaike International Airport
Bandaranaike International Airport
(BIA).[48] Its state-of-the-art flight kitchen at BIA has a capacity of 25,000 meals per day.[49] Incorporated in 1979, as Air Lanka Catering Services Limited with BOI status, SriLankan Catering commenced business as a Joint Venture with Thai Airways
Thai Airways
International. In 1998 when the Joint Venture Agreement with Thai Airways
Thai Airways
International lapsed Air Lanka Limited bought the shares of the Joint venture partner and thus Air Lanka Catering Services became the fully owned subsidiary of SriLankan Airlines Limited. Thereafter the Company changed its name to SriLankan Catering (Private) Limited in September 2000.[50] Frequent flyer programme[edit] SriLankan's first frequent-flyer programme was called Serendib Miles and was abandoned in early 2000. It then became a partner of Emirates' Skywards
Skywards
frequent-flyer program. However, this agreement ceased to exist when the partnership between the two airlines concluded on 31 March 2008.[51] SriLankan subsequently launched FlySmiLes, which has since added a variety of new reward partners to its program.[52][53] New membership tiers were added after the airline's enrollment to the Oneworld
Oneworld
alliance to accommodate Oneworld

SriLankan Airlines
passengers and employees, have been a result of the civil conflict in Sri Lanka. 1980s[edit] Main article: Air Lanka Flight UL512 On 3 May 1986, a bomb planted by the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam exploded on board Flight UL512 prior to takeoff at Bandaranaike International Airport. The bomb, which had been timed to explode in-flight, went off while the Lockheed L-1011
Lockheed L-1011
'Tristar' aircraft was on the ground, killing 21 of 128 passengers. Officials believe the bomb may have been concealed in crates of meat and vegetables that were being freighted to the Maldives. Other reports believe that the bomb was hidden in the aircraft's 'Fly Away Kit'. 1990s[edit] In 1992, the right landing gear of an Air Lanka Boeing 737-200 (registration 4R-ULL) at Madras airport (now Chennai
Chennai
International Airport) failed upon landing and the right engine came into contact with the runway. The aircraft pulled to the right and finally came to a stop, with the nose wheel and right wing on the grass to the right of the landing runway. The right engine caught fire – extinguished by the airport safety services – and the 104 passengers and 12 crew evacuated the aircraft via the chutes on the left side without injury. The damage to the aircraft was substantial; the plane was subsequently repaired and sold on.[54] The Indian Directorate General of Civil Aviation concluded that "the accident occurred as a result of failure of the right hand main landing gear beam during the landing due to pre-existing stress corrosion cracks and pits at its inboard lug hole and higher than normal landing loads contributed to its failure".[55] 2000s[edit] Main article: Bandaranaike Airport attack On 24 July 2001, Tamil Tigers launched a major pre-dawn attack on Sri Lankan Airforce hangar located along the Colombo-Bandaranayake International Airport. The raid left at least 19 people dead, including 14 Tamil Tigers fighters, two army commandos and three air force personnel. Two of SriLankan Airlines' Airbus
Airbus
A330 planes (4R-ALE and 4R-ALF), one A320 (4R-ABA) and one of their A340 planes (4R-ADD) were destroyed. Two other planes were damaged (A340 4R-ADC and A320 4R-ABB). A number of military planes were also damaged and destroyed.[56][57] Controversies[edit] SriLankan Airlines
SriLankan Airlines
has been accused in the recent past of corruption, and the former Chairman Nishantha Wickramasinghe of having affairs with air hostesses. Wickramasinghe, has been accused of lacking the experience or formal education that would qualify him to be the head of an airline. Hundreds of millions of rupees of losses were suffered since the company's management was taken back from Emirates Airlines by the Rajapaksa Administration.[citation needed] In March 2015, a report was released following a Board of Inquiry investigation into corruption at SriLankan during the time it was under the chairmanship of Nishantha Wickramasinghe. The Board has reported that corruption was widespread and confirmed the allegations of Nishantha Wickramasinghe's affairs.[58] However, the Mahinda Rajapaksa Information center denied the allegations, and accused the report of being biased and invalid, accusing the head of the committee of publicly supporting the current government in the elections and lacking technical knowledge about the aviation industry. It further claimed that he had been bribed to submit such a report as a publicity stunt to humiliate the previous government, and that most of the points within it were untrue.[59] In October 2015, the Presidential Commission of Inquiry to Investigate and Inquire into Serious Acts of Fraud, Corruption and Abuse of Power, State Resources and Privileges (PRECIFAC) attempted to summon Wickramasinghe to inquire about various irregularities in the Airline; however, they were unable to locate him, and his wife claimed he had not come home for three years and that she was unaware of his whereabouts. Later he notified the PRECIFAC that he was abroad and was unable to give a statement.[60][61] See also[edit]
