SriLankan Airlines to revamp brand offerings
February 16th, 2010: SriLankan Airlines has embarked on an exciting new journey that would give their passengers a richer Taste of the Paradise, they already know and love. The Airline is introducing a whole new experience on ground and in the air, that promises its passengers a total “Change in the way You fly !”
Beginning the journey with its iconic logo the monara or the peacock , the airline’s front line staff from cabin to ground crew will sport a brand new look and a warmer smile.
But the charm, elegance and grace of the peacock will be preserved as the hundreds of beautiful stewardesses at SriLankan Airlines undergo this transformation. Their iconic Kandyan Saree uniform still retains its oriental charm but yet have a distinctive modern appeal and contemporary look. The new colour palette plays with the soft hues of sea blue splashed with the delicate multi-hued motifs of the peacock feather with its shimmering iridescent bursts of electric orange mottled with dark, light blue and white.
While the women and men who take care of every little detail of a passengers’ comfort on ground and in flight, will offer a vastly improved level of service, decked in their new uniforms, the airline’s onboard kitchen has turned an entirely new chapter in their in flight meal service and offers its passengers a tempting array of mouth watering signature dishes and cocktails never served on board before. And passengers have the added choice of ordering from a new A la carte menu and having their meals literally cooked on board!
While new menus, served by a cabin team with a brand new look is guaranteed to tempt the most discerning passengers’ taste buds, a whole new experience in, in flight entertainment also awaits movie buffs.
SriLankan Airlines will continue this journey of new discovery with more comfortable seats on board with more leg space and flat bed seats in the business class. Trimmings and trappings on board, like the seat covers will also change to give a completely new look and feel to the experience of traveling with SriLankan Airlines, which aims to be one of the best in Asia.
Passengers who fly SriLankan Airlines may wonder if they are really airborne or at a gourmet restaurant in one of the world’s top gastronomic capitals. The airline’s flight kitchen led by a team of chefs from the Hot and Cold Kitchens; Bakery; and Confectionery headed by Production Manager Sudhish Kumar Pande and Executive Chef Anthony Gibson has designed menus to pamper the palate and titillate the taste buds beyond imagination.
Passengers will have an entirely new experience of an intimate, personalised service as the in flight staff wheels a five-star meal to your seat whenever you wish to dine. All boundaries of space and time have been stretched enabling passengers to enjoy a multi-gastronomic experience at their will.
The new menus reflect a truly global feel and flavor. Complementing the wide international array on offer, Sri Lankan dishes have been re-defined and re-invented to encompass a sensational range of aromas and tastes to seduce our thousands of passengers.
The “Preserved Ginger and Cardamom Smoothie”, followed by the perennial Sri Lankan favourite - “Suduru Samba braised in Aromatic Mutton and Spice Stock accompanied with Aubergine and Plantain Pahi, dark roasted Chicken Curry and spicy Seeni Sambal’ are some the team of chefs’ specialties.
The humble ‘Pol Roti’ has been redefined and given a new lease of life at 36,000 kms above sea level. It comes in a modern garb..
