Mihin Lanka’s Recommencement of Operations: Mihin Lanka is pleased to announce the recommencement of its operations WITH effect from 1st January 2009.


In accordance with the aspirations enshrined in ‘ Mahinda Chinthanaya’, MIHIN LANKA was founded to provide ‘low cost’ air transportation to the traveling public. This gave an opportunity for a wider segment of society to travel abroad by air, at affordable prices.


MIHIN LANKA recently acquired a new, 186 seater aircraft Boeing 737-800 type (2008 vintage ) of ultra modern technology, fitted with CFM56-7B26 engines. To facilitate local exporters and manufacturers/trade, this aircraft would provide approximately 3 tons of cargo capacity.


Starting from 1st January 2009, MIHIN LANKA will operate 6 frequencies to Dubai (daily, except on Saturdays ), with Colombo departure at 1800 hours. MIHIN LANKA is on target to commence scheduled operations to Indian cities within the month of January 2009.


To assist Buddhist pilgrims, plans have been finalised to operate once weekly flights to Buddhagaya, effective February 2009.


Customers have the options of either contacting the airline’s ‘Call Center’ directly, on 011-2002255 or their Travel Agents, for information, bookings and ticketing assistance.
