Mihin Lanka is a Sri Lankan low cost airline that is based in Colombo. It was established in 2006 and is wholly owned by the Government of Sri Lanka. It uses Bandaranaike International Airport as its hub for international flights and the Mattala Rajapaksa International Airport at Hambantota as its hub for domestic flights.
The carrier is probably the only low cost airline that includes a complimentary on-board meal and offers free checked baggage allowance as well. These small touches stand as testament to the airline’s mission, which is “to transport passengers to their destination, most affordably and comfortably”.
Mihin Lanka Airlines is well recognized for providing exemplary service to its passengers, and a recent award was the Low Cost Airline of the Year 2011 at the Bangladesh Monitor Awards.
Some of the parts of the globe covered by this airline include the Middle East, Southeast Asia and the Indian subcontinent. Some other destinations may be served by its partnership with SriLankan Airlines. Passengers in Saudi Arabia may make a Mihin Lanka booking from many locations in the Middle East including Abu Dhabi, Bahrain, Dubai, Muscat, Sharjah and Kuwait.
The fleet of the carrier consists only of Airbus A320 aircraft that are constantly maintained in a safe and comfortable condition.
Passengers may check in at the airport starting from 3 hours before the departure of their flights, so it is advisable to reach in time with all travel documents in order. Counters would close 45 minutes before the flight departure time, and passengers may not be permitted to check in after this time. Travelers may also check the status of their reservation using their Mihin Lanka PNR status at any point of time after making the booking.
On board the aircraft, passengers may enjoy a new range of delicious meals for as low as $2, other than the regular meals and beverages that are available. The airline aims to make the travel experience for passengers better every day, so that even repeat passengers might experience something unique each time they choose this carrier.
