Online Travel

A few months ago SriLankan Airlines launched its e-mail bookings facility for Sri Lanka where customers in any part of the world could request flight bookings through the internet at any time of the day or night for any flight on SriLankan Airlines out of Colombo, except to India. rn

rnNow customers can even book flights to India from Colombo. Further, SriLankan has extended email bookings to its Hong Kong and Singapore stations. rn

rnCustomers in all three stations can also check fares online, a facility that was previously not available for Colombo. rn

rnA five per cent discount on gross fares is available for flights out of Colombo and Hong Kong, while for Singapore fares are in line with those distributed to agents in the region. rn

rnTickets in the case of e-mail bookings, can be made available at the ticket office or couriered to the customers office or home, as he/she chooses. rn

rnSriLankan Airlines expects this facility to be particularly useful to individual travellers and families. Th
