Rotana Jet launches services to Sri Lanka

Mattala: Shaikh Ahmad Bin Saif Al Nahyan, chairman of the Board of Rotana Jet, the Abu Dhabi-based domestic carrier, on Thursday launched flights to two airports in Sri Lanka, the carrier’s first international destinations outside the Gulf.

Airline officials said the two-year old carrier will operate three flights a week from Al Bateen Executive Airport in Abu Dhabi to Sri Lanka’s main Bandaranaike International Airport just outside Colombo and the recently opened Mattala Rajapaksa International Airport in Hambantota.

The airline will use an Airbus A319 aircraft with both business and economy class seats. The airline stated that it planned to later increase flights to six per week.
