Looks like Biman is doing good
Biman earns Tk 35cr in first quarter

BSS, Dhaka

The profits earned by Biman Bangladesh Airlines Limited marked a significant increase during the first quarter of the current 2009-2010 fiscal year.

The airline earned Taka 34.45 crore profits during the first quarter of the current fiscal year (July to September 2009).

The profits earned by the national flag carrier amounted to Taka 24 crore during 2008-09 financial year, according to a press release of Biman.

These earnings were made from different fields, including carrying passengers and cargoes, and Biman's catering and poultry projects.

Earlier, the airline made Taka 5.91 crore profits during the 2006-07 financial year.

After becoming a public limited company, Biman Bangladesh has been undertaking various programmes for modernizing it.

To make Biman passengers feel "once Biman always Biman", the airline has brought about some qualitative changes in its service concept.

Biman has been aiming to achieve the goal of becoming a truly international commercially viable airline of the region with its warmth and friendliness, care, safety record, traditional hospitality and comfort of services it offer. Biman now carries the nation's flag to South Asia, South- East Asia and Far-East, Gulf and Middle Eastern region and European countries. A steady progress has been made with better services ensuring increased passengers.

The corporate body is 'Biman Bangladesh Airlines Ltd' while the trading name is Biman Bangladesh Airlines. Biman is a member of IATA. Incorporated in Bangladesh, it came into being on January 4, 1972 initially with a Second World War vintage Dakota, DC-3, a gift from the Air Force.

Biman is now paying attention to making the airline more attractive to the traveling people by fixing priority on two objectives. One is to provide more comfort to the passengers and the other is to maintain schedule regularity.

Biman Flight Catering Center (BFCC) - modern flight kitchen of the airlines - has the capacity of producing 8,500 meals a day and is providing excellent cuisine not only to Biman but also to some other international airlines operating to and from Dhaka.

Biman Poultry Complex, a potential subsidiary of Biman, was formed in 1976 and was put into operation in November 1980 to create a profit-earning concern to augment the cash flow of Biman.
