Currently, Biman Bangladesh Airlines operates an all-Boeing fleet, including the Boeing 737, 777, and 787. In addition to these aircraft, the carrier also operates Dash8-Q400s.

According to Mahbub Ali, the junior minister for civil aviation in Bangladesh, the decision to purchase 10 aircraft from Airbus has been taken in phases and is currently being assessed by a technical committee. This marks a shift from Biman Bangladesh Airlines’ reliance on Boeing and its first order with the French planemaker.

Biman Bangladesh Airlines’ demand for more widebody aircraft comes as travel is seeing a strong post-pandemic rebound. The carrier flies non-stop to 20 destinations worldwide including Britain, Malaysia, Thailand and Canada.
