Sri Lankan Airlines

The Airline Pilots’ Guild today said that SriLankan Airlines requires at least 330 Pilots to function at full capacity for the designated flights.

The Association said over 70 pilots resigned from the Airline last year, with many more resignations pending due to the issues faced by the Pilots.

“This has resulted in a complete depletion of Pilots”, the Association  said.

The severity of the issue was witnessed in the recent incident where there were no Pilots on standby to be assigned to a flight that eventually departed more than 12 hours later than the scheduled time of departure.
