Situated in a picturesque location overlooking the Aircraft Parking Bay on the first floor of the departure hall at BIA, “Serendib” is an exclusively branded SriLankan Airlines Lounge for its most valued premier and top tier customers. With a seating capacity for 80 persons and dining capacity for 20, Serendib Lounge comes with an elegant outlook and relaxed ambience to cater to the demanding expectations of the modern business traveller.
Emirates has opened its own dedicated passenger Lounge at the Bandaranaike International Airport, Katunayaka (BIA), becoming the first international airline to invest in such a facility at the BIA.
Completed at a cost of Rs 200 million, the Emirates Lounge on the second floor of the Arrivals Terminal is exclusively for the use of the airline’s First and Business Class passengers and Gold members of Skywards, its frequent flyer programme.
The 5,778-square-foot space is designed, equipped and furnished to the exacting specifications developed for Emirates Lounges at many other major international airports around the world. It can accommodate up to 118 passengers in comfort, helping further cushion them from travel weariness.
Emirates is one of the most active carriers serving Colombo, with 34 flights a week.
This makes the Emirates Lounge a tangible value addition to passengers departing or transiting at the BIA. Our investment in this facility reflects the continuing commitment of Emirates to its operations in Sri Lanka, as well as our optimism about the potential of the destination.
The Emirates Lounge at the BIA features 58 leather armchairs, a dining area for 54 people, a Business Centre with seating for six, an outdoor terrace overlooking airside with seating, a well-stocked bar, a TV viewing area with the choice of most of the international channels, a dedicated prayer room, shower facilities, and washrooms for males, females and disabled. It offers buffet dining for all meals and Wi-Fi facilities.
