SriLankan Airlines, the flag carrier of Sri Lanka, unveils its refurbished office located at Sir Baron Jayatilaka Mawatha, Colombo 01. Strategically positioned in the commercial heart of Colombo, the Airline’s city office is an eclectic mix of traditional and contemporary styles.
The Dutch Colonial façade, inner structure and courtyard offer a soothing and welcoming atmosphere of old-world charm, which is complemented with modern, purpose-built interiors. The facility will be occupied by the Corporate Offices, Passenger, Cargo Sales and SriLankan Holidays.
SriLankan Airlines hosted its Sales and Corporate Offices at WTC in Colombo and the lease of which was terminated two years ago resulting in annual rent savings of LKR 80 million. Further, the lease of the Cargo Sales office premises in Colombo will be terminated resulting in further annual savings of LKR 10 million.
The refurbishment of the Sir Baron Jayatilake Mawatha site was started as part of the restructuring program to improve the effective utilization of the office premises and the project got delayed due to the pandemic.
The property, which has a long history, was received by Air Ceylon in 1976 from the state, with the closure of Air Ceylon. The property was purchased by Air Lanka in 1985 and is currently the only property owned by SriLankan Airlines.
