Goa to become SriLankan Airlines' 50th destination

Colombo: The famed Indian coastal resort town of Goa is to become SriLankan Airlines' 50th global destination, and the 10 th in India, with the airline planning to launch services from Colombo in October.
The twice-weekly flights, which would be of two hours' duration, are scheduled for Mondays and Saturdays.
Bilateral travel between India and Sri Lanka is at an all-time high with Indians being among the most frequent visitors to Sri Lanka. In return, Sri Lankans now rank as the third largest block of visitors to India, after the United States and Britain.
The airline's domestic arm, SriLankan Air Taxi, has made the entire island accessible within an hour, and now serves 14 destinations, with the low-flying amphibious aircraft giving a breathtaking view of the panorama of Sri Lanka, combined with the exhilaration of a landing on water.
