From check in to check out I got more support than I have experienced on any other flight and I landed in Jakarta with confidence and reassurance. The Mihin team even went over and beyond the call of duty to help me with all my ground arrangements from the time of ticketing to even assisting in getting my travel documents in order. The customer service provided both at the Colombo Airport and on arrival in Jarkarta was so efficient and professional; it made me feel very relaxed. As a representative of the country at an international pageant, I was treated with respect and received a lot of attention that is generally lacking in our industry. The flight was very comfortable and the crew friendly and courteous. I am very grateful that Mihin Lanka came forward to support me even though the request was at short notice.”
Ms. Rangi Perera - Manager Marketing Communications, Mihin Lanka had this to say: “When we sponsor someone we believe in, we lend support all the way. We believe that when that person is representing Sri Lanka we have a duty to give them the maximum support that we can and not only just the ticket. So we ensure the service is seamless until they get back home again.”
