Biman,the flag carrier of Bangladesh,will double the number its flights on the Kolkata-Dhaka sector and also connect the Indian metropolis with its port city of Chittagong from November using small planes,a top official of the airline has said.

“We are keen to increase our connectivity with India and use up the bilateral rights. But we don’t have enough planes. So,when I get the delivery of two turboprop jets,which are expected soon,we will connect Dhaka and Chittagong with Kolkata. This should happen by November,” Biman Managing Director and Chief Executive Kevin John Steele said here.

Steele,said he would also double the existing capacity to Kolkata from Dhaka apart from connecting it with Chittagong.
