Singapore Airlines is getting bullish on Sri Lanka, with the airline announcing the move to deploy ten flights per week up from the existing seven.

The enhancement of operations to Colombo and back is part of a revamp of SIA’s services during the northern summer schedule from 27 March to 29 October 2016. Tourist arrivals from Singapore have increased by 3% in the first 11 months of this year to 13,468 and  the city-state is a major transit hub as well as a popular destination for Sri Lankans. In 2014, there were 15,762 tourists from Singapore, up by 1.4% over 2013.

In the first ten months of 2015, there had been 75,659 Sri Lankan tourists to Singapore, up by 4% over the corresponding period of 2014. Sri Lanka is the third biggest South Asian market for Singapore after India and Bangladesh.

The airline said it will add a sixth daily flight to Bangkok in March, up from five daily flights as well as an increase in frequency to Milan in Italy.
