Biman Bangladesh’s first new Boeing 777-300ER has arrived in Dhaka after a 16hrs 8mins non-stop flight from Seattle. Another will follow shortly and a further two next year. They will replace elderly DC10s. The airline has four 787s on order, these replacing the carrier’s Airbus 310s. Biman Bangladesh Airlines currently flies to 18 international destinations in Asia, Europe and the Middle East.
The Bangladesh aircraft is Boeing 777-300ER number 300, the most popular version of the 'Triple Seven', the best selling of the model range. In total some 1,288 variants of the 777 have been ordered, the current backlog standing at 325.
Boeing's updated Current Market Outlook forecasts the twin-aisle as the fastest-growing segment of the market over the next 20 years with a demand for 7,000 new aircraft in the 777 and 787 size range. www.biman-airlines.com
