The Airline has completely removed its Fuel Surcharge on all tickets to short-haul and medium-haul destinations. These include all cities in India and the Middle East, as well as Bangkok, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Hong Kong, Beijing, Male, and Karachi.

The Fuel Surcharge on fares between Colombo and just five long-haul destinations — London, Paris, Frankfurt, Rome, Tokyo — has also been greatly reduced.

SriLankan has also significantly increased the fuel efficiency of its aircraft fleet, and begun replacing its older aircraft with newer ones.
