Government officials must fly by Biman Bangladesh Airlines on the routes where the government-run carrier operates flights. This was announced yesterday by Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina after inducting the fourth Boeing-787-8 dreamliner Rajhangsha in the Biman Bangladesh fleet at the Shahjalal International Airport in Dhaka. With the new aircraft, the fleet strength of Biman Bangladesh has gone up to 16.
Bangladesh has inducted four new dreamliners in its fleet to shore up its operations in the recent past. It is part of a 2.1 billion dollar agreement signed with Boeing in 2008 to purchase 10 new aircraft. Boeing has supplied all the aircrafts including four 777-300 ER’s, two 737-800’s and four Dreamliners to Biman Bangladesh.
