Replete with traditional Sri Lankan hospitality and warmth, SriLankan Airlines’ Business Class is sure to make your flying experience luxuriously comfortable. Here’s why. By Bayar Jain
If you’re looking to take to the skies post the lockdown, consider booking a ticket with SriLankan Airlines. While the flag carrier of the island nation is amazing in every class, the Business Class takes the experience a notch higher.
The Business Class experience begins at the airport itself, where a priority check-in at the silk route and complimentary access to the Serendib Lounge – SriLankan Airlines’ exclusive lounge – of Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA) pampers you. Located on the first floor of the departure hall of the airport, the lounge comes painted in an elegant look paired with a relaxing ambience. With a seating capacity of 80 and dining of 20, any discerning traveller is bound to escape from reality while looking at the bustling Aircraft Parking Bay.
The segue into the luxury then weaves seamlessly with the on-board amenities of the Business Class. To begin with, passengers are offered a complimentary Aigner amenity kit consisting of essential cosmetics and toiletries to facilitate a refreshing journey. Add to this the inflight mood lighting designed to create a simulation of Sri Lanka’s magical sunsets, and you’ve got yourself comfort like no other.
This homely vibe extends to SriLankan Airline’s Business Class food offerings as well. Not only will you find yourself spoilt for choice with some of the finest wines, but an extensive menu of delightful delicacies will leave you blissfully confused. Catering to special dietary preferences, or preordering meals at the time of booking are just some of the many ways the airlines ensures a great culinary experience in the skies.
Once you’re done satiating your hunger, unwind on their Flat Beds. Available on select flights, these largely window-seat cabins provide individual storage space and immense knee room. A dazzling night sky display will help you fall into a cosy slumber, while over 120 movies, 80 TV programmes, almost 200 audio channels, and 15 games will keep you entertained during your waking hours.
