Biman Bangladesh Airlines has added a 4th Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner to its fleet.

The aircraft, Rajhangsha, landed at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport in Dhaka around 4:40pm on Saturday after concluding a 15-hour journey from Seattle in the United States, said Biman Manager (Public Relations) Tasmin Akhter.

Biman Managing Director Capt Farhat Hasan Jamil welcomed the aircraft with water salute in the afternoon.

Rajhangsha was scheduled to arrive on Thursday but was delayed as Boeing, a US aircraft manufacturer, sought a further 48 hours to deliver the aircraft.

With the inclusion of the new one, the number of aircrafts of the national flag carrier has risen to 16.

Biman struck a deal with Boeing in 2008 to purchase 10 aircrafts from it, and has received all of them -- four new Boeing 777-300ERs, two 737-800s and four 787-8 Dreamliners.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has chosen the names of four Dreamliners - Akash Beena, Hansabalaka, Gangchil, and Rajhangsha.

Rajhangsha has 271 seats -- 24 belonging to business class, and 247 belonging to economy class.
