Nov 07, Colombo: SriLankan Airlines is taking a firm step towards further increasing travel connectivity between Sri Lanka and Canada. SriLankan Airlines commences code-shared non-stop services between Toronto and New Delhi with long standing partner Air India, providing seamless connections to Colombo, from 7th November 2019 onwards.

Vipula Gunatilleka, Chief Executive Officer of SriLankan Airlines said: "Air India is a valued longtime partner and we are pleased to be teaming up with them to provide this service. SriLankan has been expanding our network through a combination of increasing our own destinations and frequencies; and expanding into new markets through codeshares with partner airlines. This is intended to facilitate travel for visitors to Sri Lanka, Sri Lankan residents overseas and Sri Lankans wishing to travel overseas."

Ms. Meenakshi Mallik, Director - Commercial, Air India said: "Air India is continuously working towards providing convenience to travelers & with this enhanced cooperation with our long standing partner Sri Lankan Airlines, travelers will now have seamless connections between Canada & Sri Lanka through Delhi Airport".

Travelers will now have the opportunity to book their entire journey in one go, which they were earlier unable to do. The non-stop flight from Toronto's Lester B. Pearson International Airport to New Delhi's Indira Gandhi International Airport is supported by rapid connectivity to Colombo with connection times of just 4 hours for Colombo-Delhi-Toronto and 6 hours for Toronto-Delhi-Colombo.

Flights operate on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays both to and from Toronto. The Delhi-Toronto flight AI187 will have the UL code UL3640; while the Toronto-Delhi flight AI188 will have the code UL3641.

SriLankan and Air India currently codeshare on each other's flights to a large number of destinations in South Asia, the Far East and the Indian Ocean region.

SriLankan Airlines has a route network of 130 cities in 58 countries, including codeshare operations in partnership with the world's finest airlines. SriLankan also connects travelers to over 1,000 cities in 160 countries through its oneworld partner airlines.
