SriLankan air taxis popular with corporates

National air carrier SriLankan has indicated that its air taxi business unit, serviced by two De Havilland Twin Otter aircraft, each with a 15 passenger capacity, has become popular with the island's corporate sector. This was highlighted by a recent day outing for 20 of Ceylinco Insurance's Platinum category premium clients and their families to Kandy faciliated by the charter of both aircraft which also cut down back and forth travel from six hours to just one hour.

The company also noted that the "option of returning to Colombo the same day after concluding their business in another city, has proved to be a big attraction to corporate customers in addition to the time saved on a quick half an hour to forty five minute flight to any of the air taxis current destinations."
Further indicated; "Besides its scheduled flights to Kandy, Bentota, Koggala and Dickwella , the air taxi can be chartered for leisure outings or for quick transfers to any of the air taxi’s current destinations. The air taxi also offers scenic rides of half an hour from any of its existing destinations."

SriLankan also revealed that "Moet Hennessy, MAS Holdings, Arc Worldwide (integrate arm of Leo Burnett solutions), Mackwoods, Finlays, Orient Lanka and Odel, have chartered the air taxis for their travel within the country."
