Biman to lease two more aircraft
Biman Bangladesh Airlines, the national carrier, will lease two more Boeing 737-800 aircraft by December this year. The move was taken to replace two decades-old aircraft Airbus A310-300 that were grounded last month, reports BSS. “The process is under way to lease the two Boeing 737-800 aircraft for a long period,” said Biman General Manager (Public Relations) Shakil Meraj. "We are optimistic to complete the process by December this year." With the inclusion of the two new aircraft in its fleet, the total number of aircraft of Biman will be 14. Several companies have submitted proposals after Biman had invited the request for proposal (RFP), he said adding that now they are evaluating the proposals and the appropriate one would be picked soon. The two grounded aircraft would be sold through international tender, he continued. Meraj said Biman would introduce four new routes with the new and modern fleet on March 28 next year. "Among the four routes, two would be to China while one each to Maldives and Sri Lanka," he said. Moreover, Biman has an agreement with Boeing for two modern and updated Boeing 787 Dreamliners which would be added to the carrier by 2019.
