Did MAS Ever Fly To Colombo!

Fri May 18, 2001 2:15 pm

I know that MH has been code sharing CMB-KUL flights with SriLankan for two decades now, but it seems pretty strange that they are not flying their own a/c to Colombo. Other leading asian carriers like, Singapore Airlines, Thai and Cathay fly there regualrly. Any reason as to why MAS did not opt to fly to Colombo? or did they ever fly to Colombo?

Any information is welcome.

They did fly to Colombo back in the 70s.

Dont know when they ended it, but since about 1984 they have been code sharing with UL on three weekly flights.

I think you're mistaken Gardermoen, MAS has never had its own service CMB.
Its predecessor MSA I believe did fly to CMB.
