SriLankan Airlines opened an office in Melbourne, Australia, in late June.

The carrier says that this is its first step towards operating flights to Australia.

SriLankan chairman, Nishantha Wickremasinghe, says: "This is an important first step in our efforts to start direct flights to Australia, particularly in view of the large numbers of Sri Lankans and tourists whom we can serve on this route and beyond to our European, Middle Eastern and Indian destinations. This would also give us the opportunity to build strong partnerships to connect to serve more destinations within Australia."
