AeroSvit's new flights to boost Ukraine-Sri Lanka connections
Feizal Samath, Colombo, September 20, 2011
 

UKRAINIAN flag carrier AerosSvit Airlines will be launching thrice-weekly direct services between Kiev and Colombo from October 22, according to Johann Wijesinghe, director at Hayleys Leisure Holdings, the airline’s GSA in Sri Lanka.

 

Wijesinghe told TTG Asia e-Daily that AerosSvit would operate a Boeing 767-300ER aircraft on the route, configured with 24 business-class and 207 economy-class seats.

 

Ukraine’s other flag carrier, Ukraine International Airlines, started the first flights between Ukraine and Sri Lanka last December, offering twice-weekly services between Kiev and Colombo, via Abu Dhabi, using a Boeing 737-800 aircraft.

 

Some 25,850 travellers from Eastern Europe, including Russia and Ukraine, visited Sri Lanka in the first eight months of 2011, up 25 per cent over the same period last year.
