Shiranthi Brother SriLankan Chairman’s Girlfriend Couldn’t Wait

Just a week after local newspapers exposed SriLankan Airlines Chairman, Nishantha Wickremasinghe for ordering a Colombo bound aircraft from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore just to pick him up en route it has now been revealed that he had once again intervened to  change another flight.

The Sunday Times  reported  that a SriLankan Airlines flight from Colombo to Paris was supposed to wait until a tour group of some 80 passengers going to the French capital arrived from the Maldivian capital of Male, but had suddenly taken off after “an influential crew member” had intervened.

“However after a short wait, it suddenly took off without the inbound passengers from Male. The 80 tourists were transferred to other carriers,” the Sunday Times report said.

“The talking point on the corridors of the Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA) was whether an “influential” flight crew member with connections to the top telephoned a big wig and said the long wait is troubling her. Instructions came for the flight to take off for Paris immediately” the newspaper reported.

Colombo Telegraph can now reveal that the flight crew member in question who made the impatient telephone call was Chathurika Muhandiramge. According to SriLankan Airline sources she is intimately involved with Chairman Nishantha Wickramasinghe. She had put a phone call through to the Chairman to ask him to order that the flight take off ahead of schedule to Paris.

The cost of rerouting the 80 passengers from Male on other flights would have had to be borne by Sri Lankan Airlines and therefore by the Sri Lankan tax payer since the airline is operating at a massive loss.

Recently Wckramasinghe diverted a commercial UL flight to Singapore to have himself, his wife and a guest picked up from Singapore’s Changi Airport. Telephoning the airline, Wickramasinghe ordered that the scheduled SriLankan direct flight from Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia to Colombo be diverted to Singapore so that he and his entourage could be picked up on the way, the Sunday Times reported last week. This was because Wickramasinghe could not wait for the scheduled SriLankan flight from Singapore to Colombo that was to take off from Changi in just two hours. The National carrier has been running in to hundreds of millions of rupees of losses since its management was taken back from Emirates Airlines by the Rajapaksa Administration. Wickramasinghe is the elder brother of First Lady Shiranthi Rajapaksa and has no experience or formal education that qualifies him to be the head of an airline.

    Sad thing is that all these comments are here on CT web page that the gentleman in question doesn’t read. How about CT forwarding this page to him and to the President and to his dear lady wife. At least the bloggers would get some satisfaction and a result. How about it CT? Is it a challenge?

      that will be like him still continuing to read those notes while all the others including those two females have run off due to the building catching fire.

      one reason for his worn out look maybe that wifey is slowly poisoning him.Nowadays women are smart and know to give the correct doses for a long period.Those days they get mad and land you one single dose like queen anula did to about 5 husbands.Her genes must have been passed down.Recently also i met a sinhalese guy who was in hospital due to being poisoned by dearly beloved.

    This is an open challenge to the unions at the airline, Sri Lanka Nidahas Sevaka Sangamaya, FlightvAttendants Union, Pilots union, Engineers union, Aircraft mechanics union . What is your response to these alleged misuse of power. You can either defend these actions or you can condemn them. What about the board of directors, who must be well aware of their personal liability , have they sought any clarification ? Someone has to at leat do what is right for the owners and stakeholders. After all it is a misnomer to call the airline government owned, it is owned by the “public” of our beloved country. And public can ask these questions as well, the airline can be contacted by any public spirited individual on email……posting here is very little use, do something to keep any abuse of power in check

    This buffoon who is the Chairman of Sri Lankan Airlines is doing what he likes and abuse the system having the last laugh at the tax-payer and no one has done anything so far to stop him wasting public money for his own gains. Should be stripped from office and sent to jail.
