Aitken Spence Travels welcomes 1st TUI Charter from Nordic region


Reviving arrivals from Nordic region to Destination Sri Lanka, Aitken Spence Travels welcomed the first weekly Swedish charter recently. The dream liner operated by TUI, the largest global integrated tourism company carried 300 passengers on its maiden journey to Sri Lanka after a lapse of six years. Nordic consists of Swedish as well as Finnish charters and the first Finnish charter is also expected to arrive in Sri Lanka on 23 December. Staff of TUI and Aitken Spence Travels welcomed guests from Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland on board this charter with a warm traditional Sri Lankan welcome with lotus flowers, dancers and drummers.

All guests on this charter will be enjoying, exploring and holidaying in different parts of Sri Lanka basking in the tropical sun on the golden sandy beaches, exploring the rich heritage and culture of our land and enjoying the flora and fauna of our country for a truly authentic holiday experience.

Commenting on the charter Managing Director Nalin Jayasundera stated, “This year has been a great year for us at Aitken Spence Travels and Destination Sri Lanka as a whole. We have managed to secure Charter operations from UK, Russia and the Nordic region. The growing inventory on rooms with many International brands setting up operations and some commencing business helps in securing charters, cruise operations as well as penetrating to new markets. We are keen to extend the signature brand of hospitality that only Sri Lanka is able to offer and are hopeful that these guests will leave Sri Lanka with memories to last a life time.”
