All-Visakhian crew on SriLankan flight

Visakhians have created history, not only in school but also in aviation by flying an all-Visakhian crew on a Japan flight to mark the conclusion of the Centenary Year of the school.

The national carrier SriLankan Airlines, on December 2, added a new chapter to its history at 40,000 ft to commemorate the glorious 100 years of excellence of Visakha Vidyalaya with Visakhians as the technical crew, cabin crew and interpreter. The pilot in command, Captain Chamika Rupasinghe and her crew headed by Senior Cabin Manager, Ajantha Karunatilleke, in the SriLankan Airlines UL454 from Colombo to Narita was a flight to remember. The crew included Cabin Supervisor/Japanese Interpreter Deepthi Peiris, Cabin Supervisor Rashini Rajawasam, and Ayomi Indiketiyahewage, Flight Attendants Duresha Kariyawasam, Serangi Jayaratne, Charitha Paranamanne, Umangi Singhabahu, Chithmi Ranawaka, Nishani Dassanayake and Denushka Weeraperuma. “We are proud to be Visakhians. We are also proud to be a part of the nation's flag carrier and take pride in being Sri Lankan women,” the Visakhian crew said.
