SriLankan Airlines has launched new services to the southern Indian city of Hyderabad.

The airline is offering a four-times-a-week service to Hyderabad, connecting the city to Doha and other places through its global route network. In a press statement, SriLankan said Hyderabad is one of three south Indian cities that the airline has commenced operations to in July, together with Visakhapatnam and Coimbatore. With these additions, the airline operates 126 flights per week to 14 cities in India, with existing services to Chennai, Trichy, Trivandrum, Mumbai, New Delhi, Gaya, Madurai, Varanasi, Kochi, Bengaluru and Kolkata. SriLankan Airlines chief commercial officer Siva Ramachandran said, We are delighted to extend our services to Hyderabad, which we believe is an important addition to our global network. This new service reflects SriLankan’s continuous commitment in consolidating the Asian market and offering travellers seamless travel experiences with great comfort. Travellers to and from Hyderabad can now enjoy SriLankan’s award-winning hospitality onboard its ultra-modern fleet of Airbus aircraft, which possess the most sophisticated in-flight entertainment systems and superior comforts, the statement notes.
