Biman starts Dhaka-Madina direct flight

DHAKA: Biman Bangladesh Airlines yesterday launched direct flight operation to Madina from Dhaka as the second destination to Saudi Arabia after Jeddah.

The national flag carrier will operate flights on Dhaka-Madina-Dhaka route for three days in a week – Monday, Wednesday and Saturday- and one on Chattagram-Madina-Chattagram route on every Thursday.

State Minister for Civil Aviation M Mahbub Ali inaugurated the maiden Dhaka-Madina flight at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport (HSIA) here.

Biman deployed its newly purchased Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner with a capacity of 271 seats, including 24 business and 247 economic class to operate the flights on Madina sector.

The state minister said the government has taken decision to establish direct air connectivity to Madina as the second destination to Saudi Arbia because the numbers of pilgrims to perform Umrah are getting higher every year.

Besides, he said the new route will also benefit large numbers of Bangladeshi expatriate workforce who are residing in Saudi Arabia.

The Madina route is a part of Biman’s ongoing endeavour of expanding its international destination routes, Ali added.

The national flag carrier is also considering launching flight to Guangzhou and reopening flights to Sri Lanka’s Colombo and Male in the Maldives and increasing flight frequencies on existing routes.

Apart from today’s new route, Biman is operating flights to 16 other international and seven domestic destinations with 16 aircraft — four Boeing 787-8, four Boeing 777-300ER, five Boeing 737-800s and three Dash-8 Q400.

In 2008, Biman Bangladesh Airlines signed a US$2.1 billion agreement with Boeing to purchase 10 new aircrafts. Boeing has already delivered all 10 aircraft – four 777-300ER’s and two 737-800’s and four 787-8 Dreamliner to Biman.
