FitsAir expands operations with launch of charter and scheduled flights
Revolutionary Sri Lankan aviation carrier, FitsAir has announced the introduction of scheduled flights from Colombo to Batticaloa, thereby further expanding its domestic operations within the island.
A reputed pioneer in Sri Lankan aviation since its inception in 1997, FitsAir offers premium passenger services in scheduled and chartered flight configurations within Sri Lanka. The air carrier caters primarily to the business traveller, as well as tourists and leisure itinerants looking to travel comfortably within the country. Additionally, the airline also operates international cargo flights to a number of cities across the Middle East, Africa and Asia.
FitsAir’s newly introduced scheduled flights from Colombo to Batticaloa, will operate every Monday and Saturday, with dual journeys scheduled for each day. Moreover, FitsAir’s dynamic chartered flights proffers convenient schedules that run networks from Colombo to various destinations within Sri Lanka; including to prominent cities like Anuradhapura, Sigiriya, Jaffna, Trincomalee, Koggala and Katukurunda in addition to comparatively lesser known cities such as Mattala, Weerawila, Ampara, Vavuniya and Hingurakgoda.
Formerly known as ExpoAir, FitsAir was the first and sole privately operated airline to be licensed for International Cargo Operations by Civil Aviation Authority Sri Lanka (CAASL) in the country and also obtained ‘Designated Cargo Carrier’ status from CAASL, enabling the airline to secure traffic rights into Indian and Chinese airports effortlessly. Similarly, it was also the first air carrier to be certified under the International Civil Aviation (ICAO) annex requirements, and also the first domestic airline to be certified by the Department of Civil Aviation to recommence flights to Jaffna in 2002.
In a ground-breaking feat, FitsAir was the first private airline to have been granted approval to hold its own ground-handling operations at the Bandaranaike International Airport. FitsAir also holds membership with the International Air Transport Association (IATA); a global organisation that represents major carriers from 117 countries that support aviation with global standards.
Enjoying an unblemished safety record, FitsAir conducts routine mandatory safety inspections on all aircrafts which are frequently audited by the Civil Aviation Authority Sri Lanka (CAASL) and act in accordance with all regulatory requirements. FitsAir’s flight crew, maintenance team, and ground staff are highly qualified and well-trained to deliver a seamless and reliable passenger experience for all its commuters.
In keeping with the FITS slogan – ‘Friend In The Sky’ – the airline is committed to guarantee comfort and quality services to all passengers for best valued rates, whilst concurrently complying with the stringent safety standards that uphold the airline’s unwavering reliability of 15 years.
