Improve Biman’s passenger services: PM

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Thursday directed the authorities concerned to improve the standard of passenger services of Biman Bangladesh Airlines so that it can brighten the country’s image abroad.

“We hope you’ll uphold and enhance Biman's reputation by improving the standard of its services for passengers,” she said.

The Prime Minister was addressing a ceremony marking the induction of 'Gaangchil' to Biman fleet.  This is the third Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner the national flag carrier has got.

The Prime Minister commissioned 'Gaangchil' by cutting a ribbon around 11:30am at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport.

She also boarded and inspected the state-of-the-art aircraft.

Describing Biman as a symbol of the country's independence, Sheikh Hasina said people across the globe can know about Bangladesh and respect the country through Biman as its aircraft fly various countries of the world.

The Prime Minister asked all involved with Biman to operate its flights sincerely being imbued with the spirit of patriotism.

Talking about the newly-inducted aircraft, including three Dreamliners -- Akash Beena, Hangsabalaka and Gaangchil-- she said it is the responsibility of all to take good care of the new aircraft her government procured for Biman Bangladesh Airlines.

“You’ll have to work (take care of) keeping in mind that these (aircraft) are the assets of the country,” she said.

State Minister for Civil Aviation and Tourism Md Mahbub Ali, Civil Aviation and Tourism Secretary Md Mohibul Haque, Chairman of the Board of Director of Biman Bangladesh Airlines Air Marshal (retd) Muhammad Enamul Bari, among others, spoke at the event.

Biman Managing Director and CEO Farhat Hassan Jamil delivered the welcome speech at the ceremony.
