SriLankan Airlines at the Melbourne Marathon Festival for the third consecutive year
October 2019




SriLankan Airlines is the title sponsor for the Half Marathon event at the 42nd Melbourne Marathon Festival.

SriLankan Airlines, the National Carrier of Sri Lanka and a member of the oneworld alliance, is the title sponsor of the Half Marathon event at the 42nd Melbourne Marathon Festival taking place this month.

This is the third consecutive time that SriLankan Airlines sponsors the much sought-after Half Marathon, which was a sellout event last year.

The Half Marathon starts off at Batman Avenue and proceeds passing the iconic Flinders Street, Princes Bridge, St Kilda Road, Fitzroy Street, Lakeside Drive, Albert Park Lake, Aughtie Drive and turns around for a memorable finish at the Melbourne Cricket Grounds.

SriLankan Airlines launched daily direct operations between Melbourne and Colombo in October 2017, and the Marathon has been unique and a powerful way of educating the Australian traveller of its convenient connectivity and services on-board the state-of-the-art A330-300 aircraft.
