Maintaining flight schedule is the biggest challenge for Biman Bangladesh Airlines, said newly appointed Managing Director and CEO of the national flag carrier Abu Saleh Mostafa Kamal today.
About his plan to take Biman to a new height, Abu Saleh said he has taken time to craft short, mid, and long-term strategies. During a press conference at Biman's head office at the city's Kurmitola, the Biman boss said he wants to ensure that Biman flights leave on time.
"I want to see Biman flights leaving on time without the MD checking in at the airport. If this can be ensured, Biman will have a bright future," said Kamal. The national carrier is infamous for its delays, causing passengers' distress.
Pointing to the issue of Biman flights leaving 4-5 hours later, the newly-appointed MD said Biman will gain passengers' confidence and the national airliner will be benefited on a long-term basis if they can maintain flight schedule.
Regarding alleged corruption in Biman, the new chief said he will not hesitate to take action against any official if they are found involved in corruption.
