My dad told me he might go to Sri Lanka in July, but he´s not quite sure about that. He told me also that you have to wait 3 days @ ORY or LHR for available flights... I don´t know if it´s true...
Which airlines actually fly to Sri Lanka?
BTW, does Sri Lanka have a airline company??

Your Dad could get the daily Emirates flight to Dubai from LHR, LGW, or even MAN, and then connect to Emirates' service to Colombo, operated by either a 777, or an A300-600, daily.
Airlines flying to CMB are: Emirates, Gulf Air, Kuwait Airways, Saudi Arabian, LTU, AOM, Britannia, Monarch, Indian Airlines, Sri Lankan, Cathay Pacific, Thai, Korean Air Cargo, Armenian Airlines, Aeroflot, Eurofly, Qatar Airways, Balair and I am sure a few others.

Sri Lankan have daily London/Colombo flights using the A340, and AOM flying just twice weekly to Colombo from Paris using the A340s. Also, there is a weekly service from Vienna using Austrian Airlines, and also from Sofia once a week on Balkan.
Another exotic way would be to fly on Air Maldives. they now have twice weekly A310s services from Manchester and Gatwick that fly to Male via Dubai . ANd then from Male there are several connections to colombo.
