US-Bangla Airlines to spread wings in April

The domestic aviation sector is set to heat up as US-Bangla Airlines, a joint venture private carrier, aims to spread its wings in April.

The airline has acquired two Q400 turboprop planes made by Canada’s Bombardier Aerospace to launch its operation.

Akhtar Ahmed, Director for sales and marketing of the airline said “We want to provide fast and comfortable experience to the air travellers. We aim to start our domestic flights at the end of April.”

Though the airline will fly on the domestic routes initially, it has a plan to open new markets and create greater connectivity in the region, Mohammed Abdullah Al Mamun, managing director of the carrier, said in a statement.

Currently, the local carriers fly mainly on four domestic routes out of Dhaka — Chittagong, Cox’s Bazar, Sylhet and Jessore with the Dhaka-Chittagong route having the highest traffic flow, followed by Dhaka-Jessore.

Domestic air travel rose 11.58 percent year-on-year in 2012, when some 589,108 people travelled on the domestic routes, according to Civil Aviation Authority of Bangladesh.

Currently, United Air is carrying the highest number of passengers on the domestic routes. Besides, Novoair celebrated its first year of operations last month with a record of 97.3 percent on-time departures in more than 4,500 flights, carrying 150,000 people across five major cities.
