Business News Update: SriLankan Airlines flew the West Indies cricket team into Colombo yesterday for its tour of Sri Lanka. The 25-member squad flew in from London on two flights, enjoying the comforts of the national carrier’s Business Class cabin.
This is the third time that the West Indies team has travelled on SriLankan Airlines in recent years, having also flown in 2015 and 2016. Arrangements for the squad’s travel were made by SriLankan’s GSA office in the US.
The West Indies are scheduled to play three one-day internationals and two Twenty20 international matches against Sri Lanka in Colombo, Hambantota and Kandy, preceded by two warm-up matches.
