SriLankan Airline’s corporate offices relocated to Katunayake from Colombo

3 July 2019 - 138   - 0

SriLankan Airlines has decided to relocate all its corporate offices in the World Trade Centre, Colombo to its main operational hub in Katunayake.

“The management of SriLankan Airlines would like to emphasise that it is business as usual for all our valued customers as none of the key sales and customer centric frontline operations will be relocated contrary to recent media reports,” the airline said in a media statement.

Accordingly, Sri Lanka Sales, FlySmiLes, the Global Contact Centre and the Cargo Sales Offices will continue to operate from their current locations in Colombo i.e. Level 3 - World Trade Centre, Iceland Building - Colombo 3 and De Vos Avenue - Colombo 4 in order to provide convenient and direct customer access. 

“This initiative would result in a cost saving of approximately Rs. 75 million per annum and will make our back office operations much more efficient. The shifting of the offices commenced on June 28 and will continue on a staggered basis with completion planned by mid-August,” the airline said on Wednesday.    

This is the second time the corporate offices are being moved to Katunayake, after a similar move some years ago.
