About This Airline

Sri Lanka’s National Carrier offers unique stopover options, great value and great Business Class airfares to select destinations in Europe.

Melbourne to Colombo is a daily service, Sydney to Colombo is four times a week, and departing directly out of these cities offers the best value fares to London, Paris & Frankfurt. SriLankan Airlines uses their OneWorld partners to offer fares out of Adelaide, Perth & Brisbane via Singapore or Kuala Lumpur. This gives you options to stop in Singapore or Malaysia on the way to Europe and Colombo on the way back or vice versa.

The airlines used for SriLankan fares on flights between Australia and Asia are:

  • Qantas – Singapore
  • Malaysia – Kuala Lumpur
  • SriLankan – Colombo

On the way to Europe you can stopover in:

  • Asia – Singapore, Kuala Lumpur & Colombo

STPC – Stopover inclusion in Colombo

On the way back from Europe to Australia, the majority of the flight paths have a long transit time in Colombo. The transit is typically during the daytime and SriLankan Airlines includes free transit accommodation and airport transfers for their Business Class passengers who have a transit longer than eight hours. Once your tickets are issued and passport details are in the booking, your Airfare Geeks consultant will arrange the rest for you; you will need an e-visa to enter Sri Lanka, which is only $25 and easy to arrange online at
