Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has called upon the employees of Biman Bangladesh Airlines to brighten the image of the national flag carrier as well as the country by their hard work and sincere effort.
“I want every single person in Biman to work with utmost sincerity so that it must not have any ‘bad name’,” she said yesterday while inaugurating the operation of newly inducted 787 Dreamliner ‘Akashbeena’ to Biman’s fleet at the VVIP lounge of the Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport, Dhaka.
Putting emphasis on the quick delivery of passenger luggage using modern technology, the Premier directed the officials concerned to give additional attention to security matters. “You must always give proper attention to the security matters of the airport,” she added.
In the recent past, she mentioned, some countries imposed sanction on Bangladesh (cargo ban). “One country withdrew its sanction as security at our (airports) has improved,” she said. Briefly describing various government efforts to improve the Biman service, the Prime  Minister said the government has reached a purchase agreement with Canada to acquire another three Dash-8 Bombardier aircraft, aiming to increase domestic connectivity.
She said the government is working for developing the country’s airports, too. “By the time, the Cox’s Bazar Airport runway has been expanded, while the modernisation of Sylhet airport has been completed. The work on Terminal- 3 of Shahjalal International Airport will begin soon.” The Prime Minister said the work to construct a new airport in Bagerhat is on.
Hasina said connectivity is very important for a country. “Keeping that in kind, the government is working hard to improve air, rail, road and waterway connectivity.”
