SriLankan Airlines​ bids goodbye to its Airbus A340s after 21 years!

SriLankan Airlines, the first Asian airline to operate the four-engine Airbus A340 aircraft, will bid goodbye to the last of its A340s after more than two decades in service, with a final commercial flight recently.
SriLankan introduced the A340 on 1st September 1994, at the time when it was the most sophisticated aircraft manufactured by Airbus Industrie. Over this 21-year period, a total of seven A340s have served the Airline, and were for many years the mainstay of its long haul fleet.
The national carrier has inducted a brand new fleet of seven sophisticated A330-300 aircraft which offer the latest comforts and technology such as mood lighting, on-board Wifi connectivity, and the most sophisticated inflight entertainment system.
