Biman’s 787 ‘Achin Pakhi’ arrives

Biman’s brand new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner “Achin Pakhi” arrived in Dhaka from Seattle, USA, last night.

The aircraft, which left Boeing Everett Delivery Centre at 2:30pm (local time), landed at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport around 8:19pm, said Tasnim Akhtar, public relations manager of Biman.

The Dreamliner was named by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
