I chose Sri Lankan Airlines for my flight from Colombo to Singapore. The professional treatment by the staff and the level of recreation and relaxation was highly commendable. The air ticket provides real value for my money whether it is a domestic flight or an international flight.
Sri Lankan Airlines is undoubtedly one of the best international airlines. Ever since my first journey from Colombo to New Delhi, I have never thought of travelling on any other airline. Sri Lankan Airlines has a highly professional and competent crew along with an environment that truly makes you feel at home.
When I traveled for the first time from Colombo to Kuala Lumpur, I chose Sri Lankan Airlines for my travel. I must say that the standards of the air ticket have changed my perception about air travel. They have taken professionalism and service to new heights, which I believe can scarcely be found in other airlines. I cannot imagine my journey without Sri Lankan Airlines; it is indeed the only air ticket on which I will travel.
