Emirates celebrates three decades of success in Sri Lanka

Emirates is celebrating three decades of service connecting Sri Lanka.

On 1 April 1986, an Emirates Boeing 727-200 Flight EK800 departed Dubai International Airport touching down in Colombo. Thirty years later, Emirates has logged 56 million miles with 34 flights a week to Dubai, Malé and Singapore.

The airline has already announced it will increase capacity further with addition of a fifth daily flight between Colombo and Dubai from 1 August 2016. Emirates has recorded solid year-on-year growth in Sri Lanka over the years, carrying nearly four million passengers in the last two and half decades.
