Today is Sri Lankan airlines 35th Anniversary. To celebrate, it is offering an impressive 35% off business class flights and 20% off economy flights, to all of its destinations bookable online.
As a result of the discount, some prices are very impressive. Heathrow to Beijing, Hong Kong and Bangkok, all for under £1545 business class are good examples. Heathrow to Tokyo at £1754 in business class is also an excellent price.
In terms of the specific timing of the offer, it’s valid until midnight on 1st September 2014 at the point of origin of the flight. It applies to travel commencing 15 October, up to 10 December 2014. The discount will be applied automatically, there is no need for a discount code.
This leads to some very impressive flight prices, and it’s well worth having a look. Return prices we found include:
- London Heathrow – Hong Kong (business class): £1543 in October/November 2014
- London Heathrow – Bangkok (business class): £1543 in October 2014
- London Heathrow – Beijing (business class): £1538 in October 2014
- London Heathrow – Tokyo (business class): £1754 in October/November 2014
- Frankfurt – Hong Kong (business class): €1718 in October 2014
There are of course plenty of other routes available – if you’re prepared to search and be flexible, you may well be able to grab a real bargain. While the prices we have seen are generally better with Sri Lankan airlines, it is worth comparing their prices to those in the current British Airways sale (as an example of the better prices we have seen with Sri Lankan airlines, Tokyo returns start at £1754 with Sri Lankan, and £2472 in the British Airways sale).
Notably, Sri Lankan airlines have recently upgraded their business class product. Flat beds are now the norm on long haul.
