COLOMBO: The board and management of SriLankan Airlines have taken a decision to relocate all its corporate offices in the World Trade Centre to its main operational hub in Katunayake.
However, the management of SriLankan Airlines said that none of the key sales and customer-centric frontline operations will be relocated contrary to recent media reports.
Accordingly, Sri Lanka Sales, FlySmiLes, the Global Contact Centre and the Cargo Sales Offices will continue to operate from their current locations in Colombo i.e. Level 3 – World Trade Centre, Iceland Building – Colombo 3 and De Vos Avenue – Colombo 4 in order to provide convenient and direct customer access.
“This initiative would result in a cost saving of approximately LKR75 million ($422,737) per annum and will make our back office operations much more efficient,” the management said in a statement.
The shifting of the offices commenced on June 28 and will continue on a staggered basis with completion planned by mid-August.
