Star Business Report

Biman Bangladesh Airlines has introduced two more apron buses to provide better ground handling services at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport.

With the two, Biman has now seven apron buses that are used to transport passengers to and from or within airports.

Air Marshal Jamal Uddin Ahmed (retired), chairman of Biman's board of directors, launched the buses at a function at the airport on Thursday.

The buses that can carry 70 passengers each with sufficient room for luggage were made in Germany, Biman said in a statement.

"In the coming days, we hope to add more modern equipment to our GSE (ground support equipment) so that we can provide better services to our customers."

The apron buses will carry boarding and alighting passengers of all airlines operating to and from Dhaka, the state-owned carrier said.

The airport apron buses are manufactured in accordance with the relevant standards of International Air Transport Association and US Federal Aviation Administration and have low chassis, large capacity and manual and automatic transmission, Biman said.
