SriLankan Bags Platinum Standard Status by APEX Health Safety

SriLankan Airlines has been awarded the Platinum Standard status by APEX Health Safety powered by SimpliFlying following a full independent audit for our efforts in ensuring the highest standards for passenger safety and wellbeing during air travel, post-Covid.   

This status recognizes airlines that go above and beyond minimum standards required to rebuild traveller confidence and confirms our commitment to the safety of both our passengers and staff.

The Airline Passenger Experience Association (APEX) and SimpliFlying have teamed up to create this health safety standard for airlines, which aims to help the industry by giving airlines a proactive role in the resumption of global travel and in creating a common standard for Health Safety.   

Chairman SriLankan Airlines Ashok Pathirage stated that “The latest recognition awarded to SriLankan Airlines based on an international independent safety audit, is a definitive indication that, with the adoption of the right health and safety measures such as detailed on-board safety, hygiene, and social distancing procedures at airports, compliance with the testing and entry requirements of local authorities, SriLankan Airlines stands tall in the aviation industry in its operations under trying conditions of a global pandemic and is a source of pride to Sri Lanka.”  

Mr. Pathirage further stated that “The Platinum Standard status   is a timely accolade for SriLankan Airlines at a time when Sri Lanka’s borders are reopening for international travel and tourism.”

The CEO of SriLankan Airlines Vipula Gunatilleka said: “From the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, we have introduced the most rigorous and stringent hygiene and sanitization procedures both on-board and on-the-ground that is on par with global aviation practices.As the national carrier, SriLankan is keen to lead the recovery of commercial airline operations and renew passenger confidence with passenger wellbeing as our priority.  

The evaluation covered 58 touchpoints across the passenger journey and weightage assigned.
