BSS, Dhaka :

The offer will be valid for booking till March 18 for the new destination, to be operated twice-a-week on every Friday, one Biman’s official told BSS today.
After a long interval of almost 7 years, Biman Bangladesh Airlines resumes its operations to Frankfurt of Germany, with its newly inducted Boeing 777-300ER, making it the 19th overseas destinations of the national flag carrier.
The Flight BG 055 will leave Dhaka on Friday and Monday at 10:00am for Frankfurt and arrive there at 1840 local time. Similarly flight BG 056 will leave Frankfurt at 2010 local time to arrive Dhaka at 13:00 hour local time.
Frankfurt came under Biman’s wings in 1986 and Biman had serviced the sector for more than 19 years at a stretch.
The flight was suspended in 2006 in the wake of aircraft constraint. Now with the acquisition of new aircraft, the airline is considering resumption of flights to places where it had presence in the past, the official said.
