Fur­ther, the new des­ti­na­tions and air­craft op­er­at­ing in and out of Colombo have en­abled the air­line to of­fer a vastly im­proved and su­pe­rior qual­ity prod­uct cou­pled with ac­cess to the best tourist des­ti­na­tions in Europe along with the lux­ury and fi­nesse of one of the best First and Busi­ness class cab­ins avail­able to­day.”
