Biman To Retire A310s By 4Qairways
Biman Bangladesh Airlines (BG, Dhaka) will retire its A310-300 fleet from active scheduled service at the end of the Hajj season in September an airline official has disclosed.
Speaking to The Nation newspaper, the official said S2-ADF (cn 700) and S2-ADK (cn 594) would be replaced with two B737-800s secured on sixty-month dry lease contracts.
The carrier had planned to replace the A310s with either two B777-200s/(ER)s and one B777-300(ER) or one B737-800 and one B777-300(ER). However, those plans were abandoned after the carrier’s board voted to focus more closely on the regional Asian market as opposed to the long haul market.
Biman currently operates four B737-800s, two B777-200(ER)s (leased from EgyptAir (MS, Cairo Int’l)), four B777-300(ER)s, and two Dash 8-400s on scheduled passenger flights throughout Bangladesh domestically as well as to the UAE, Thailand, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Nepal, India, Malaysia, Kuwait, United Kingdom, Oman, and Myanmar.
