Second leasehold Boeing joins Biman fleet

Second leasehold Boeing joins Biman fleet

The second leasehold Boeing 777-200 ER aircraft from Egypt Air joined the fleet of Biman, the national flag carrier of Bangladesh, on Tuesday.
Biman earlier signed a deal with Egypt Air, the national flag-carrier of Egypt, to give two Boeing 777-200s—each having 319 seats on lease to Bangladesh for five years. The first aircraft arrived in Dhaka on March 21.
The second aircraft arrived at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport in Dhaka, the Egyptian embassy said in a statement yesterday.
Egyptian Ambassador to Dhaka Mahmoud Ezzat, Chairman of Biman Bangladesh Airlines Air Marshal Jamal Uddin Ahmed and Deputy Head of Mission of Egyptian Embassy Omar Shoeab were present at the occasion.
Biman now has 10 aircraft in its fleet: four Boeing 777-300ERs and two each B 777-200ER, Airbus A 310s and B 737s.
