Colombo, Sri Lankas commercial capital, is now more accessible from Singapore with Dubai-based Emirates increasing its flight frequency from a four-flight weekly service to a daily service on the Singapore-Colombo route.

Emirates EK349 departs Singapore daily at 00:55 hours and touches down at Bandaranayake Airport at 01:55 hours, local time, on the same day. The return flight, EK348 departs from Colombo at 14:55 hours and arrives in Singapore at 21:15 hours, Singapore time, on the same day.

A 354-seat Boeing 777-300ER, offering 8 Private Suites in First Class, 42 lie-flat seats in Business Class and the remaining 304 Economy Class seats serves the Singapore-Colombo route.

Nick Rees, Emirates Manager, Singapore and Brunei, said, We are accumulating a great deal of valuable experience in serving our valued passengers who have travelled to Sri Lanka from Singapore since our launch in 1986. With year round all-inclusive fares starting from Sin$484 in Economy, Sin$1,599 in Business and Sin$ 3,442 in First Class, we are seeing more customers trying out our Emirates services to visit Colombo from Singapore. As Colombo grows in its stature as a tourist and commercial destination in Sri Lanka, we are confident that the demand for our Colombo service will remain robust.
