The brand new Dash 8-400 aircraft will land in Dhaka on Wednesday and will be add to the Biman Bangladesh Airlines fleet. 

The plane will depart for Bangladesh from De Haviland Bombardier Aerospace, a Canadian aircraft manufacturer. 

The Biman procured the three Dash 8-400 aircraft under the G2G (government-to-government) agreement between the Bangladesh and Canadian governments.

Earlier, the national flag carrier received the first Dash 8-400 aircraft out of three made by De Havilland Aircraft of Canada, a prominent aircraft-maker of the North American country.

The number of Biman’s aircraft is now 19, including four Boeing 777-300ER, four Boeing 787-8, two Boeing 787-9, six Boeing 737 and three Dash 8-400. With the addition of the new Dash plane, the number of Biman’s aircraft will be raised to 20.
