US-Bangla decides to increase flights to Chennai, Male

US-Bangla Airlines, one of the country's private carriers, has decided to increase its flight frequency on Dhaka-Chennai-Dhaka and Dhaka-Male-Dhaka routes.

From Mar 13, the airliner will operate daily flights instead of the current five weekly flights to Chennai in neighboring India.

The carrier also decided to operate four weekly flights from Mar 16 instead of existing three to Male, capital city of the island country Maldives as air travelers demand has been amplified in recent time, a press release of the airline said in Dhaka on Tuesday (Mar 8).

US-Bangla Airlines will operate 164-seat Boeing 737-800 aircraft on these routes, it added.

Currently, US-Bangla operates international flights to Dubai, Muscat, Doha, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore inhabited by expatriate Bangladeshis, Chennai, and Guangzhou in China.

US-Bangla is also planning to operate flights to Colombo, Delhi, Abu-Dhabi, Jeddah, Riyadh, Dammam and Medina soon.
