Looks really great. Pretty much all the same features as the previous website, but now easier to use and more classy as well.

Swissgabe, you beat me to it!!  Smile

I agree. Looks pretty smart.

Its got some nice additions too for example virtual tour of the cabins, Sample food menus etc.

Also you can pre-order dutyfree goods now!! Correct me if I am wrong, but I think this must be a first for any airline.

I particularly liked the new interactive route map, where a plane(graphical) moves along the route  Big thumbs up

I think its the first in Asia. Swissair and now Swiss both used to offer this service for passengers to pre-order duty-free items.

There are still some bugs on the site and errors which will have to be amended but the site in general is very nice. I like the gallery as well.

.aero name was introduced with SriLankan Airlines nearly one month ago. Of course .lk works as well. Try and click http://www.airlanka.com THAT's stylish!

And just by the way, to get more details on the .aero part, click to:

"I think its the first in Asia."

Qatar Airways has been offering this service for a while. I believe GF does too but I am not sure.

Zizou, the official SriLankan Airlines website is:
http://www.srilankan.aero, when you click http://www.airlanka.com or http://www.srilankan.lk you will be redirected automatically to http://www.srilankan.aero, it also should show www.srilankan.aero in the URL bar but to some reason it doesn't. On the former website it did.

Srilankan_340,

Nope both Qatar and Bahrain are in Asia. The Middle East is more of a region much like "Western Europe" or "South East Asia" but technically both Qatar and Bahrain are in Asia and just like Sri Lanka is considered to be in Southern Asia we are in West Asia.

From the geographic point of view Middle East is in Asia. But QR, have you ever heard someone calling EK, QR, WY, SV, KU, IR, etc an "Asian carrier"?

Anyway, around here we should care more about the new UL website. I think online bookings should be available network wide. Guess it won't take too long until this feature will be available.

QatarAirways,

Geography wasn't one of my strongest subject........ Thanks for enlightening me.

Anyway, I am told that the new web address is being painted/displayed on the side of the aircrafts now to increase awareness.

Hope to get some shots this week end.

Wonder how this will look like ...

Excellent !!

Oh Oh.. I love to see those menus... Mouthwatering! Brings back memories...!

I can't help mentioning that they do best poached eggs. I am yet see any hotel or restaurant beat Airlanka poached eggs.

Well done Srilankan keep the good work up!!!
