Paint your airplane with aero-domain
ICANN Registrar Secura: Fast and reliable registration of aero-domains (PresseBox) (Cologne, ) Srilankan Airlines has painted its aero-domain on their aircrafts.

SriLankan Airlines' corporate website has changed from to However, users would be able to log in to the address for at least the next 12 months, until the identity becomes well established. SriLankan will be among many thousands which have registered an aero-domain, including airlines, aviation industry news services, engineering and maintenance firms and service organisation.

"We have taken the initiative to migrate to .aero from the present country specific .lk in order to take advantage of the new global airline domain and to better reflect our status as an international company," said Nigel O'Shea, Head of IT at SriLankan Airlines.

All present e-mail addresses at SriLankan Airlines have also had .lk replaced with .aero, but could still be reached through .lk for the next 12 months.

"The aero-domain will provide a unique identity for airlines, differentiating from other Internet domain extensions such as .com (commercial), .net (network), or country specific domain such as .lk, .sg and .uk," said Kamal Nanayakkara, SriLankan's Senior Manager Network & Communication.

The aero.domain has been reserved worldwide for participants of the aviation industry, including airlines, aircraft manufacturers, and airline industry persons. The aero-domain is expected to make it easier for Internet users to find aviation-related websites on the Internet.

SriLankan Airlines IT Division formed a project team which planned, executed and tested the migration to the new domain over the last four months, reworking the airline's massive IT network.
