Our History

The saga of Jetwing is one of classic entrepreneurship. In 1970, Sri Lanka, implemented a tourism master plan which marked its entry into the international tourism arena; Herbert Cooray, Jetwing’s late chairman and a contractor by trade, received an opportunity to be associated with the tourism sector, when he was called upon to construct a hotel in Negombo. He rose to the challenge and built a small property of 6 rooms catering to the ‘charter traveller.’ He subsequently bought the hotel and so Jetwing was born.


The Jetwing umbrella of companies caters to a wide variety of clientele, from basic needs to customised, personalised service; we understand and offer it all. Through our three main divisions, Jetwing Travels, Jetwing Eco Holidays and Jetwing Hotels we have emerged as one of the leading hotel chains and travel groups in Sri Lanka.

Jetwing has over 33 years experience in successful Marketing & Management of various Travel & Tourism related products together with over 14 years experience in the Management of Airline General Sales Agencies.
