Govt. has plan to operate Biman’s flight on New York route: Menon

07 February 2015, Nirapad News: Civil Aviation and Tourism Minister Rashed Khan Menon today said subject to commercial viability the government has a plan to operate flights of Biman Bangladesh Airlines on the New York route from the winter schedule of 2016.

The minister said this today while replying to a written question from treasury bench member Mahmud Us Samad Chowdhury in the Jatiya Sangsad.

The minister said presently operating Biman’s flight on the New York route is not possible as the Civil Aviation Authority of Bangladesh (CAAB) is under category-II of safety audit of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), USA.

A necessary program for improving the CAAB to the category-I has been undertaken by the government, Menon informed the House.
