Bangladeshi airline US-Bangla, the largest private airline in Bangladesh will acquire two ATR 72-600 aircraft from aircraft lessor Avation, which announced the conversion of two Purchase Rights from its order book into firm orders. Avation has further acquired two additional ATR 72-600 purchase rights to replace those that were exercised. 

“Regional connectivity is essential in Bangladesh and the region. We are delighted that we can offer our passengers the chance to access new opportunities throughout the country. Operating the ATR 72-600 makes total sense in Bangladesh, we have received very good feedback from passengers and are very satisfied with the reliability and comfort of these aircraft. With the -600 series’ modern and comfortable cabin, featuring the latest 18” wide passenger seats, we are able to give our passengers a premium experience, which is essential for US Bangla,” said Mohammed Abdullah Al Mamun, Managing Director of US-Bangla.

US-Bangla’s turboprop ATR fleet will now increase from six to eight. Increasing the size of US-Bangla’s ATR fleet also will allow an increase in frequency on certain trunk routes. The carrier uses its regional fleet to connect all of Bangladesh and feed its international network from Dhaka.
