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 11:30 am at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport in Dhaka. 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.
