SriLankan Airlines expands its operations in the North of Sri Lanka,
opening its Sales Office in the heart of the Jaffna Peninsular. The
branch office will facilitate travel formalities to a large clientele in
the Jaffna and Kilinochchi areas, being fully equipped to handle
reservations, ticketing, Prepaid Ticket Advices (PTAs), requests for
special services, information on fares, schedules and packages -
essentially offering the same sales activity carried out by any city
office of the airline.
SriLankan Airlines has appointed Metro Travels Tours as its Passenger
Sales Agency (PSA) to spearhead the operation.
“SriLankan is happy to extend its services to support the development
and enhancement of the North, which is one of the highest priorities of
the government of Sri Lanka,” said SriLankan Chairman, Nishantha
Considering the increasing customer base for air travel to and from
the northern region, the new operation will expand the size of the
airline’s local market.
“We are reaching out strategically to establish closer links with the
communities in every area of Sri Lanka through our network of PSA
offices and Jaffna is among the first such PSA offices to be re-opened,”
said the airline’s Chief Marketing Officer, G T Jeyaseelan.
