Dear Friends:

Two short years ago we created this message box on our home page, asking for your help to keep this site up and running. In that time, many of you have generously donated to our PayPal account and we are forever grateful. With your help, we've been able to make the necessary upgrades to our server to keep the site running more smoothly than ever!

The meager ad revenue generated by this site isn't sufficient to cover the annual cost of running the server, and we who manage it have never made money from it.

In an effort to continue serving the needs of aviation enthusiasts around the world, we continue to ask for donations to keep this site up and running. If you're still enjoying this website and would like to help us continue being the BEST site on the Internet for your aviation screenshot needs, please consider donating.

Thank you,
Tobin & Rush

Air Ceylon logo

Air Ceylon was established in 1947 as state-owned flag carrier airline. Services to London with two Douglas DC-4s leased from ANA-Australian National Airways commenced in summer 1949, after ANA acquired a 49 percent stake in Air Ceylon earlier that year. Air Ceylon discontinued all long-haul fights and gave up its partnership with ANA in September 1953 after BOAC had introduced de Havilland Comet between London and Colombo. The 49 percent stake held by ANA was taken over by KLM in 1955.
In 1972, UTA-Union de Transports Aériens became Air Ceylons partner, selling one Douglas DC-8 to the airline and giving technical support. UTA ended the partnership in September 1976, leaving Air Ceylon without a European aide. In 1979, Air Ceylon was shut down by the Sri Lankan government due to bankruptcy, and Air Lanka was established as new national carrier.

This page contains all films, TV series, and video games that feature aircraft of Air Ceylon.
