Bangladesh's United Airways adds Dubai to routes

28 June 2009

Bangladesh-based private airline United Airways plans to start flying to Dubai from July 10, to meet demand for the route, Reuters has reported. Company head Tasbirul Ahmed Choudhury said that the GCC and the UK are the most important markets for Bangladeshi airlines. This is because one in two people who fly abroad go to either one of the six Gulf countries or Britain, which employ over 70% of the country's more than five million expatriate workers. He added that the airline plans to start serving other Gulf and European destinations, including London using a Boeing 767-300 ER plane.
