“Our target is to provide a web of services around India, which will allow rapid connections to both Indians and foreign visitors to many parts of the country,” said G T Jeyaseelan, Head of Commercial at SriLankan Airlines.
“We embarked on a strategy last year to provide daily frequencies to as many of our existing destinations as possible, and we have achieved that in respect of India. We at SriLankan Airlines realized very early that India would become a destination of choice for an increasing number of business travellers and tourists as it opens up to the outside world. India is also the largest tourism market into Sri Lanka with traffic increasing 29.5 per cent to 90,60
