Customers have to simply dial 365 from their Mobitel phones or 1265 from the SLT landline for SLT customers who can also avail of this service. Mobitel’s corporate clients will be provided with an exclusive hotline number for streamlined booking. Already, some of the leading corporates in Sri Lanka are onboard the Mobitel Air Ticketing service and are enjoying unimaginable convenience and simplicity, it said.
