Emirates wants to harness potential of the Bangladesh market and meet demands of local travellers providing award winning services through an expansive global network, said its area manager for Bangladesh yesterday.
“Dubai and Bangladesh have very close links due to the large community of Bangladeshis living in the region and the level of trade between the two countries,” Saeed Abdulla Miran told a press meet at Sylhet city.
“For Bangladeshi customers, Emirates is now offering short-stay Dubai visa at its sales counters without any hassle,” said the new appointee.
“Emirates SkyCargo operates ad-hoc chartered flights and in last three years, it carried over 100,000 tonnes of cargo to and from Dhaka,” he said seeking continuous support for growth.
Emirates started operation in Bangladesh in 1986 with two weekly flights and now operates three daily services from Dhaka, facilitating travel to 159 destinations of 85 countries.
