Flight marshals on SL planes

Sri Lankan Airlines is considering of having air marshals on board some flights following the Easter Sunday attacks.

Vipula Gunatilleka, the CEO of Sri Lankan Airlines, told Euronews that whilst the national air force had taken charge of ground security, the state-owned transporter was looking to bring air marshals on board some flights.

Despite improved security measures, a drop in visitor numbers to the island nation following the attacks would be expected, the airline chief added.

The CEO added that despite the current situation, day-to-day operations at the company couldn’t be disregarded, highlighting that the strategy to turn the loss-making airline into a profitable one was still in place.
