SriLankan Airlines is taking a firm step towards further increasing travel connectivity between Sri Lanka and Canada. SriLankan Airlines commences codeshared non-stop services between Toronto and New Delhi with long standing partner Air India, providing seamless connections to Colombo from 7 November onwards.

SriLankan Airlines Chief Executive Officer Vipula Gunatilleka said: “Air India is a valued long-time partner and we are pleased to be teaming up with them to provide this service. SriLankan has been expanding our network through a combination of increasing our own destinations and frequencies; and expanding into new markets through codeshares with partner airlines. This is intended to facilitate travel for visitors to Sri Lanka, Sri Lankan residents overseas and Sri Lankans wishing to travel overseas.”

Air India Director – Commercial Meenakshi Mallik said: “Air India is continuously working towards providing convenience to travellers and with this enhanced cooperation with our long standing partner Sri Lankan Airlines, travellers will now have seamless connections between Canada and Sri Lanka through Delhi Airport.”

Travellers will now have the opportunity to book their entire journey in one go, which they were earlier unable to do. The non-stop flight from Toronto’s Lester B. Pearson International Airport to New Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport is supported by rapid connectivity to Colombo with connection times of just four hours for Colombo-Delhi-Toronto and six hours for Toronto-Delhi-Colombo. Flights operate on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays both to and from Toronto. The Delhi-Toronto flight AI187 will have the UL code UL3640; while the Toronto-Delhi flight AI188 will have the code UL3641.

SriLankan and Air India currently codeshare on each other’s flights to a large number of destinations in South Asia, the Far East and the Indian Ocean region.

SriLankan Airlines has a route network of 130 cities in 58 countries, including codeshare operations in partnership with the world’s finest airlines. SriLankan also connects travellers to over 1,000 cities in 160 countries through its oneworld partner airlines.
