Airport and Aviation Services Sri Lanka, (AASL) proudly announces the launch of the “Silk Route” Lounge – an exclusive pathway that will provide a smooth and hassle-free entrance for Commercially Important Passengers (CIPs) through the Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA).
As guests of the lounge, CIPs will have the opportunity to relax in luxury and comfort and will be provided with an exclusive and expedited immigration and customs process. The “Silk Route” is spe-cially designed so that the ambience is conducive not only for passengers enjoying a short break in journey, but also for those requiring thorough and continuous connectivity.
Mobitel, the Trusted National Mobile Services Provider, is the proud sponsor of the “Silk Route”, and will equip the lounge with free WiFi access to these passengers. The “Silk Route” CIP lounge is ex-pected to create an indelible “first impression” of Sri Lanka and reflect the country’s state-of-the-art infrastructure and service standards to potential investors, very important visitors and other important guests.
Chairman of AASL, Prasanna Wickramasuriya said “The “Silk Route” is an accomplishment under AASL’s belt and will further enhance the standards and appeal of BIA which is already recognised as one of the best airports in the region with over 20 airlines serving more than 31 cities in over 21 countries.
Chairperson of Sri Lanka Telecom Mobitel, Leisha De Silva Chandrasena, speaking at the event, said “As a group we are delighted to be partnering AASL in this timely venture which is of high signi-ficance at a National level.”
