PM to inaugurate Dreamliner ‘Rajhangsha’ this afternoon

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina will inaugurate the Biman Bangladesh Airlines fourth brand new Boeing Dreamliner named as ‘Rajhangsha’ today afternoon.

The Prime Minister will formally inaugurate the VVIP tarmac at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport (HSIA) on Tuesday at 4:00 pm.

The Dreamliner touched the taxiway of Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport in Dhaka on Saturday afternoon directly from the USA’s Seattle’s Boeing Factory.

Four pilots of Biman led by its chief of flight safety Captain Shoeb Chowdhury operated the new aircraft onboarding the delegation from Seattle to Dhaka.

Rajhangsha, the 271-seat Boeing 787-8, has been designed as 20 percent fuel-efficient carrier compared to the other aircraft. The airliner has the capacity to fly 16 hours nonstop with an average speed of 650 miles per hour.

It will provide its passengers with Wi-Fi services at a height of 43,000 feet, allowing passengers to browse the internet or connect with their friends and family from any place in the world.
