Dhaka: Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, worldwide air communication has been struggling. Nevertheless, even under the new and challenging circumstances, US-Bangla Airlines has now taken its legacy to the eighth year of successful flight operations.
On July 17, 2014, US-Bangla Airlines started its journey in the aviation industry of Bangladesh by operating flights on Dhaka-Jashore with two Dash8-Q400 aircraft. In the first year, US-Bangla Airlines strengthened its air communication system in the shortest possible time by operating flights to all operational airports within Bangladesh. In the domestic network, they operate flights from Dhaka to Chattogram, Cox's Bazar, Sylhet, Jashore, Saidpur, Barishal, Rajshahi.
Later, US-Bangla commenced its operations on international routes on May 15, 2016, two years after the launch of the Dhaka-Kathmandu route. Now they are operating in Kolkata, Chennai, Muscat, Doha, Dubai, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Bangkok, and Guangzhou. It also plans to operate flights to Abu Dhabi, Jeddah, Riyadh, Dammam, Colombo, Male, and Delhi in the near future.
On the occasion of entering its eighth year, Mohammed Abdullah Al-Mamun, Managing Director, US-Bangla Airlines, said, “In a competitive world, we are ready to take on any kind of competitive challenge. In today's world, there is no substitute for brand new aircraft to provide proper service to passengers.
US-Bangla is constantly adding new aircraft to its fleet to ensure comfortable service for passengers. US-Bangla is the only domestic airline operating domestic flights with brand new aircraft. In Sha Allah, I am planning to add more brand new aircraft to the international route in the near future. The US-Bangla family is very happy and proud to be associated with the country's economic progress.”
The US-Bangla fleet currently has a total of 14 aircraft, including four 164-seat Boeing 737-800s, 72-seat ATR 72-600s, and three 76-seat Dash 8-Q400 aircraft. US-Bangla has a record of 98.7 percent on-time flights since its inception.
Since independence, US-Bangla Airlines has been the only domestic airline to operate direct flights to any destination in China or Chennai, and India.
In the context of Bangladesh, US-Bangla is providing a number of special services to passengers, which set an example in the aviation industry. One of the notable services is luggage delivery within 15 minutes of landing international flights, a 20 percent discount for senior citizens, a 10 percent discount for military officers and golfers, and many more.
US-Bangla Airlines not only transports passengers but also cargo to various domestic and international destinations.
