0 11

FitsAir, Sri Lanka’s low-cost airline, announced the launch of direct flights connecting Colombo and Dhaka, Bangladesh from April 16 2024.

This move represents a significant milestone in regional aviation, addressing the growing demand for affordable travel options between Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. In light of Bangladesh’s rapidly expanding economy, attracting considerable interest from Sri Lankan businesses, Dhaka is emerging as a popular destination. Recognising this trend, FitsAir is committed to providing affordable, on-time, and efficient air connectivity to cater to the needs of this growing market.

Ammar Kassim, Executive Director of FitsAir, “The Bangladesh economy is one of the fastest growing in the world, and we’re excited to offer competitive prices for business travellers and visitors alike. We anticipate our non-stop service to Dhaka will stimulate bilateral trade and economic growth.”

The newly added route will initially operate twice weekly, with an anticipated increased frequency in the summer, subject to government approval. FitsAir’s carefully crafted flight schedule allows for immediate connections to Male, Chennai, and Dubai from Dhaka. Additionally, exclusive benefits will be offered to corporate travellers to effectively meet their needs.

In addition to the new Dhaka route, FitsAir currently operates direct services to Dubai, Male, and Chennai from its hub in Colombo. Fits Air began operations in 1997 in the Air Cargo business and became the first privately owned airline to operate scheduled international passenger air service out of Sri Lanka.
