SriLankan Airlines has denied that the Airlines is running a social media promotion where free tickets are issued.
The said promotion quizzes participants on three questions. As per messages on social media, the promotion is run to mark 40 years to the operation of the Airlines.
The official twitter account for SriLankan Airlines stated that the promotion was ‘not a SriLankan Airlines promotion’ and that the ‘Airline will not take any responsibility with regard to this unofficial promotion’.
We wish to notify you that the 'SriLankan Airlines survey that is giving away free tickets' currently circulated on social media and messenger apps is not a SriLankan Airlines promotion, and the Airline will not take any responsibility with regard to this unofficial promotion.— SriLankan Airlines (@flysrilankan) January 11, 2018
Airlines such as Qatar Airways, Emirates and Fly Dubai have also been victims of such scams.
