“The government is working to transform Bangladesh into one of the leading aviation hubs under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. Extensive development has been achieved at all airports in the country, including the construction of the third terminal at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport, and further development work is underway.”
