US Bangla's latest addition brings the airline's total fleet to 20 aircraft.

The ATR 72-600, seating 72 passengers, will service domestic routes and Kolkata in future plans.

US-Bangla Airlines operates both domestic and international flights, covering major cities across Asia.

DHAKA — US Bangla Airlines celebrated the addition of an ATR 72-600 to its growing fleet this Sunday, marking it as the ninth of its kind for the private carrier. Touching down at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport at 7pm, the aircraft journeyed from Blagnac Airport in France, making stops in Cairo, Egypt, and Muscat, Oman. Captain Lutfor Rahman, the Chief Executive Officer of US-Bangla Airlines, officially welcomed the aircraft.

This latest acquisition has bumped the airline's impressive fleet count to 20. Breaking it down, the fleet comprises eight Boeing 737-800s, nine ATR 72-600s, and three Dash8-Q400s. It's notable that US-Bangla began its journey back in July 17, 2014, with only two Dash 8-Q400 aircraft.

The ATR 72-600, equipped with 72 seats, is set to service a variety of domestic routes. Additionally, the city of Kolkata is also on the radar for this aircraft's future operations.

Cementing its reputation as a significant player in the aviation sector, US-Bangla Airlines not only covers all domestic routes but also flies internationally. Current international destinations include cities like Kolkata, Chennai, Male, Muscat, Doha, Dubai, Sharjah, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, and Guangzhou. Furthermore, the airline has ambitious plans to incorporate six wide-body aircraft to its fleet this year, highlighting its commitment to expansion and service excellence.
