Home to over 20 million people, Sri Lanka is an island country located about 19 miles off India’s southern coast in South Asia. The island’s central location makes it the crossing point of many sea routes, and as expected, that makes Sri Lanka a thriving player in the industrial economy.
Over the years American Express has continued to strengthen and expand their operations in the Asian markets for obvious reasons – they are growing economic hotspots. Continuing the trend, Amex and Nations Trust Bank of Sri Lanka have teamed up with SriLankan Airlines to issue the first airline-branded Platinum card in the country. SriLanken operates in 25 countries with 45 destinations, including Hong Kong, London, Frankfurt, Tokyo, Kuala Lumpur, Paris, Rome, New Delhi, Dubai, and many more. The agreement also means Nations Trust, one of the biggest banks in the country, will now exclusively issue American Express credit cards.
