Private carrier US-Bangla Airlines Saturday entered the eighth year of providing services on domestic and international routes.
US-Bangla Airlines started its journey in the aviation industry of Bangladesh on July 17, 2014, by operating flights on Dhaka-Jashore with two Dash8-Q400 aircraft and soon started running flights to all operational airports within Bangladesh.
The airline now runs flights from Dhaka to Chattogram, Cox's Bazar, Sylhet, Jashore, Syedpur, Barishal, and Rajshahi.
US-Bangla started its journey on the international route on May 15, 2016, two years after the launch of the Dhaka-Kathmandu route. It now operates international flights from Dhaka to Kolkata, Chennai, Muscat, Doha, Dubai, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Bangkok and Guangzhou.
The airline plans to operate flights to more international destinations, including Abu Dhabi, Jeddah, Riyadh, Dammam, Colombo, Male and Delhi soon.
US-Bangla owns 14 aircraft, including four 164-seat Boeing 737-800s, 72-seat ATR 72-600s and three 76-seat Dash 8-Q400.
The private carrier now has about 1,500 employees at home and abroad.
Also, US-Bangla is providing several special services such as luggage delivery within 15 minutes of the landing of international flights, a 20% discount for senior citizens, a 10% discount for military officers and golfers.
The airline not only transports passengers but also cargo to various domestic and international destinations.
"In today's world, there is no substitute for brand new aircraft to provide proper service. US-Bangla is constantly adding new aircraft to its fleet to ensure comfortable service for passengers," US-Bangla Managing Director Mohammed Abdullah Al-Mamun said on the occasion of the airline's 7th anniversary."
