Several SriLankan flights delayed due to unforeseen reasons

Sri Lanka’s national carrier, SriLankan Airlines said several of the carrier’s flights were delayed on Thursday (May 03) due to a variety of reasons.

The untimely sickness of a passenger inbound from the Gulf initiated a diversion to Cochin on one flight. Another aircraft inbound from Kuwait was caught in a dust-storm and required attention from Engineering. Two other aircraft were delayed for technical reasons that have since been resolved.

The lack of aircraft meant that a number of flights, namely UL884 Colombo-Melbourne, UL281 Colombo-Jeddah, UL314 Colombo-Kuala Lumpur, UL406 Colombo-Bangkok and UL 604 Melbourne-Colombo suffered prolonged delays.

“SriLankan Airlines deeply regrets any inconvenience caused our valued customers,” the airline said in a statement.

All passengers who had checked in were provided complimentary hotel accommodation and/or meals at the airport by the airline.
