SIMPLIFLY CELEBRATES 10 YEARS IN SRI LANKA’S AVIATION INDUSTRY

Simplifly recently celebrated 10 successful years of operations in Sri Lanka with an event at Tamarin Hill in Galle for their clients and guests.

Starting off in 2004 with a single helicopter, Simplifly has grown steadfastly over the years and presently operates a fleet of 6 aircraft including seaplanes, planes and helicopters and has the largest fleet among domestic airlines.

Released statistics show that Simplifly has flown over 26,000 passengers from its inception to all parts of the country, clocking up over 10,000 flight hours in the process.

The airline has also confirmed plans to induct a new helicopter to their fleet by mid 2015.

Simplifly also launched the Millennium Flight Academy (MFA) with three trainer aircraft dedicated to training a new generation of pilots for both the airline and the aviation industry. MFA is the only facility in South Asia to offer float plane ratings, and is conveniently located close to the Maldives where the world's largest float plane fleet is based.

Furthermore, Simplifly opened a fully staffed office in the Galle Fort, the only domestic airline in the country to do so, with English and Russian speaking staff to cater to the numerous high end tourists that visit Galle in the South of the country.
