Sri Lanka’s national carrier to recruit more pilots

Feb 02, Colombo: Sri Lanka’s national career SriLankan Airlines says more pilots will be recruited with its plans to expand the services.

Under its planned route expansion program, the airline plans to increase its fleet size to 30 aircraft by 2015. The carrier re-launched services to Zurich in Switzerland earlier last month.

The SriLankan recently provided a batch of pilots a stringent one-year training program.

Sri Lankan recruits two batches of cadet pilots each year for training. It presently has a total strength of 267 pilots in service.

The national career has planned to provide Flight Simulator experience also for the future trainees.

Launched in 1979, SriLankan is currently expanding and further diversifying its wide range of products and services in order to drive the country’s ongoing boom in tourism and economic development.
