SriLankan Airlines, the national carrier of Sri Lanka, will be adding three southern Indian cities --Hyderabad, Coimbatore and Visakhapatnam -- to its network from July this year. The new connections are expected to bridge the demand of both Indians and Sri Lankans who have been looking for seamless connections across the region for work and leisure purposes, in Sri Lanka, India and onward destinations. The introduction of these new routes, along with the scheduled frequency increases in its Delhi and Mumbai services, will see Sri Lankan operating over 120 flights a week to 14 cities. "India has been a vital part of our strategic expansion where we will continue to explore potential to consolidate our presence, Srilankan Airlines Chief Commercial Officer," Siva Ramachandran said in the release.
