Apr 21, Dubai: SriLankan Airlines, the National Carrier of Sri Lanka and a member of the oneworld airline alliance, is looking to spread its wings further in the Middle East, by rolling out the red carpet to the travel trade at the 25th edition of Arabian Travel Market (ATM)that will open in Dubai tomorrow.

SriLankan Airlines is already popular with Middle East travelers, having gained a reputation for fine service and excellent hospitality and efficient connections to Colombo and onward to Asia and Australia.

At ATM, the airline is looking to attract even more tourists and business travelers from the region, by leveraging the enormous pulling power of the Indian Ocean island paradise combined with seamless onward connections to India, Southeast, East Asia as well as to Australia, The Gulf Today said.

With inbound tourist numbers on the upswing, SriLankan Airlines will be hoping to gain maximum mileage with travel industry decision makers from across the wider region, most of whom will be attending Arabian Travel Market, the leading international trade event for travel and tourism industry in the Middle East and beyond.

"We regard Arabian Travel Market as an important stage to reach the travel industry professionals in the Middle East, which is one of our most important source destinations," said Saminda Perera, General Manager Marketing SriLankan Airlines. "It is important to be present here to both interact and network with our regional travel trade partners as also acquaint them with our latest product offerings and future developments."

Responding to growing demand from the region, SriLankan Airlines has recently boosted its services with daily flights to Colombo from Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Doha, Riyadh, Muscat, Bahrain and Kuwait to 68 flights a week.
