BIMAN Bangladesh Airlines will resume operations to New Delhi and Hong Kong next month, having suspended its services to these two cities last year due to severe aircraft shortage during the Hajj season.
From May 4, Biman will operate twice-weekly Dhaka-New Delhi flights every Tuesday and Saturday on Boeing 737 aircraft with 162 seats in two- class configuration. The flights will depart Dhaka at 12.45.
The Bangladeshi flag carrier will also relaunch twice-weekly flights to Hong Kong every Monday and Friday from May 13. The Dhaka-Hong Kong sector will be flown on the airline’s longhaul McDonnell Douglas DC-10-30 aircraft, which features 314 seats in an all-economy class configuration. The flights will depart Dhaka at 12.55.
According to Kevin Steele, managing director & CEO of Biman, the service resumption to the two key destinations is “just the start of a major expansion project”.
Including New Delhi and Hong Kong, Biman’s international network will increase to 19 destinations.
