New Airline 'Fly Dhaka' to Join the Sky in November

A new private airline ‘Fly Dhaka’ will join the skies of Bangladesh and operate its first flight in November this year, if everything goes according to plan. The Civil Aviation Authority (CAAB) has already issued a No Objection Letter (NOC) to the airline company.

The company plans to bring aircraft that can ensure safe travel at an affordable price. The airline is also working to obtain an Air Operator’s Certificate (AOC) from CAAB as soon as possible.

This will be the 12th private airline in Bangladesh.

According to a statement made by the airline, all airlines are obliged to operate on domestic routes for the first year after launch. They have plans to operate flights with ATR 72-600 model aircraft on these routes. Later for international routes, the airline wants to add Airbus or Boeing aircraft to its fleet.

The private airline is owned by Anisul Islam Mahmud, a Businessman, Jatiya Party MP and the former president of the Bangladesh Flying Club.

Lieutenant General (Retd.) Molla Fazle Akbar, the Chief Executive Officer of Fly Dhaka, said regarding the new airline that the employees of Fly Dhaka Airlines are working tirelessly with the vision of ‘Connecting Dreams, Uniting Destinations’ in front of them.

He added, “Fly Dhaka Airlines will work tirelessly to achieve the goal set by the Prime Minister to make Bangladesh one of the leading aviation hubs in the world and to enrich the Bangladesh aviation industry. Fly Dhaka Airlines wants to build a strong base not only in the domestic market but also in the global market. With that goal in mind, an agreement with a giant Asian airline is already underway.”

The Airline is already hiring with full force intending to take to the skies of Bangladesh by the end of 2024.

Aminul Islam, the head of the human resource department, said, “Fly Dhaka Airlines was registered with the Directorate of Joint Venture Companies and Firms on May 4, 2021. Later it officially started operating on 1st July of the same year. Following this, the airline recently received a no-objection letter from CAAB. Currently, Fly Dhaka Airlines is taking necessary activities and measures to finalize the AOC process.”

If Fly Dhaka is launched, then it will join the country’s sky beside Novo Air, US-Bangla Airlines and Air Astra, as the fourth private airline in Bangladesh.
