SriLankan Airlines to increase frequencies to Tokyo

27 March 2019 - 97   - 0

SriLankan Airlines, one of the first carriers to fly to Tokyo’s Narita International Airport, is celebrating 35 years of flying to Narita by increasing its number of frequencies up to five per week, with Sri Lanka growing rapidly in popularity as a destination for Japanese travellers.

SriLankan is the only airline to operate non-stop from Tokyo to Colombo and provides rapid connections to many cities in South India and also to the Maldives which is a highly popular destination among Japanese tourists. Sri Lanka welcomed nearly 50,000 Japanese visitors in 2018 and is popular among both Japanese leisure travellers and those on wellness tours who wish to experience Sri Lanka’s famed Ayurveda medical and relaxation techniques, the airline said in a media release.

SriLankan has deployed its sophisticated Airbus 330-300 fleet on the Narita-Colombo sector, which contains 28 flatbeds in business class, plus 269 economy class seats, complimented by a sophisticated in-flight entertainment and world class service provided by SriLankan’s award winning cabin crew.

SriLankan currently operates four flights a week on Mondays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays, with flights departing Narita at 1120 hours and arriving in Colombo at 1710 hours on the same day. Flights from Colombo depart on Sunday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday at 1915 hours and arrive at Narita at 0735 hours on the next day. The fifth frequency, which will commence on July 16, will depart Narita on Tuesdays and operate at the same times as flights on other days.
