Bangladesh’s US-Bangla Airlines plans to add seven aircraft this year to expand its operations, including new routes.

In a statement to mark US-Bangla’s ninth year of operations, US-Bangla says it plans to add four Boeing 737-800s and three new ATR 72-600s to its fleet this year.

US-Bangla reports it currently has six Boeing 737-800s, seven ATR 72-600s and three De Havilland Aircraft of Canada Dash 8-400s. The airline earlier announced it plans to sell the Dash 8-400s.

US-Bangla plans to operate flights to Jeddah, Riyadh, Dammam, Madinah, Abu Dhabi and New Delhi as soon as possible, a US-Bangla spokesperson tells Smart Aviation Asia Pacific.

The spokesperson says US-Bangla will have to acquire a new type of aircraft, such as the Boeing 787, before commencing planned services to Europe and North America by 2023 and 2025 respectively.
