    The Canadian Press - ONLINE EDITION

    MONTREAL - Air Canada has announced a code-share agreement with SriLankan Airlines that will make it more convenient to fly between Canada and the island country in the Indian Ocean.

    Canada is home to Sri Lanka's largest expatriate community with thousands of Sri Lankan immigrants living primarily in the Toronto area.

    Travel between Canada and Sri Lanka has been growing more than 10 per cent.
    The agreement will allow passengers beginning Oct. 27 to travel to Sri Lanka on a single ticket itinerary by connecting with SriLankan Airlines at Air Canada's European gateways of Frankfurt, London and Paris.

    "The code-share agreement gives us the ability to offer customers connections between Air Canada and SriLankan on a single ticket itinerary, checked-through baggage and other benefits that will create a seamless travel experience," said Yves Dufresne, an Air Canada vice-president.
    SriLankan Airlines chief marketing officer said the agreement between the two carriers opens up other Canadian cities for Sri Lankan tourists, beyond Toronto and Montreal.

    The airline is Air Canada's (TSX:AC.B) 24th code-share partner.
