Biman Bangladesh Airlines is the national airline of Bangladesh. The airline has an international route that reaches Asia, Europe and the United States. The airline is part of the Bangladesh Biman Corporation.
Biman Bangladesh started operations in 1972, when a DC-3 that had seen action in World War II was given to the company as a present by the Bangladesh Air Force. Soon after, a Boeing 707 and Fokker F-27 planes joined the airline's fleet, allowing Biman to begin international flights.
Biman flies many domestic routes within Bangladesh. International destinations include cities in India, Pakistan, Southeast Asia, Japan, Hong Kong, the Middle East, Europe, and John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York City, New York, United States.
