SriLankan Airlines Limited (previously known as Air Lanka) is the flag carrier airline of Sri Lanka. It operates a fleet of thirteen Airbus aircraft to destinations in the Pacific Rim and Europe from its main base and center at Colombo - Bandaranaike World airfield. Air Lanka was set up by the govt of Sri Lanka in July 1979 following the closure of Air Ceylon in 1978. Air Lanka, which was state owned, was part-privatized to the Dubai based Emirates Group in 1998 when Emirates and the Sri Lankan Central authority signed an understanding for a ten-year strategic partnership. This agreement included sole rights for all aircraft ground handling and airline catering at Colombo-Bandaranaike airfield for a ten-year period.
