GMG connects Saudi Arabia

Private carrier GMG Airlines is set to land in Saudi Arabia by launching flights from Dhaka to Jeddah today.
The civil aviation authorities of the two countries have already given the airline permission to operate 10 flights a week.
GMG will operate six flights to Jeddah and four to Riyadh.
Christian Heinzmann, chief executive officer of GMG, said: “Entering into the KSA market is a big boost for the airline considering the large number of Bangladeshi migrant workers living in Saudi Arabia.”
“GMG will soon add more routes and procure aircraft to meet the growing demands of passengers.”
The airline's recently procured Boeing 767-300 ER long-range aircraft, which has a seating capacity of 264, will be deployed for Saudi routes.
The airline started operations in 1998. It began with domestic services and launched international flights in September 2004, with flights between Chittagong and Kolkata.
