Why Fly SriLankan Airlines?

How to Check In

It is easier to check in online from 24 hours to two hours before departure than it is to stand in an airport queue. Airport check-in counters close one hour before departure.

Baggage Allowances

For travel to and from North America, the baggage allowance is two pieces of checked luggage. The weight limitations are 32 kg each in first and business classes and 23 kg each in economy class. The allowance for hand luggage is two pieces up to 7 kg each in first and business classes and one piece of the same weight in economy class. Free carry-on items are a small camera or pair of binoculars, walking stick or umbrella, coat or blanket, purse, and laptop.


SriLankan Airlines has an all-Airbus fleet. The company operates 12 A330s for long haul flights and 10 total A320/A321/A319s for medium haul flights. Enhanced business class seats on the A330 transform into flat beds with extra space, direct aisle access, and on-demand movies. Seats with extra leg room in economy class are available on SriLankan Airlines flights, but only those flights not operated on a code share basis. Since the flights between London and Canada are on a code share basis, travelers cannot take advantage of this feature.

Booking Fees

SriLankan Airlines does not assess a booking fee when a traveler makes reservations, even if using a credit card to pay. The airline offers in-flight Wi-Fi on many fares, and there is a fee for this amenity.

Services on Board

The airline offers a wide choice of meals for travelers with special dietary needs. These meals, which must be pre-ordered, are available in diabetic, gluten-free, low-fat, low sodium, non-lactose, Hindu non-vegetarian, Kosher, Halal, Asian/Hindu vegetarian, Jain vegetarian, kids, infant/baby, and western vegan varieties. Travelers have a choice of entertainment options. There are seven movie channels, six television stations, and 22 radio options.
