"Clearly, Biman needs modern, fuel-efficient and reliable airplanes to move forward with our expansion and better serve our country’s growing travel needs," M.A. Momen, Biman’s managing director said.

The airline presently links Bangladesh with 18 countries around the world, but executives hope to offer flights to up to 42 countries as they roll out an aggressive growth plan.
