Bhubaneswar: While many airlines in India are discontinuing their services to Orissa SriLankan Airlines has identified it as a destination with high potential for both inbound and outbound traffic and has opened its GSA in Bhubaneswar. However they will not run any flight to Bhubaneswar and Hyderabad will be the regional hub for their operation.
Announcing this, Sales manager of SriLankan Airlines, Central India, Asha Kumar said Orissa and SriLanka are perfectly placed to attract tourists from each other as Orissa has many places of interest for Buddhists and Sri Lanka has many places to attract Hindus. She mentioned Bhubaneswar as a significant market for the airlines. The personnel in Bhubaneswar will advise passengers on issues relating to travel to Sri Lanka and provide a bouquet of services providing end-to-end travel solutions.
SriLankan has in recent times achieved global recognition for its excellent standards of service and won many prestigious titles and awards from several sources.
