DHAKA - Biman Bangladesh Airlines has taken an aggressive marketing for its Dhaka-Bangkok-Dhaka route, offering a round trip ticket for only Taka 20,060 including all taxes, to travel to Thailand, the land of white elephants.
"Number of outbound Bangladeshi tourists is increasing to Bangkok destination day by day. We reduced our fare so that the national flag carrier can be the first choice for the local travelers," Biman's Public Relations General Manager Shakil Meraj told BSS today.
Besides reducing the fare, Meraj said, the Biman is also offering passengers to carry extra luggage free of cost.
Now economy class passenger can carry maximum 30 kg instead of earlier 20 kg and business class passenger 40 kg for their checked baggage for Dhaka-Bangkok flight.
In case of Bangkok-Dhaka return flights, the economy class passengers can carry maximum 35 kg and business class passengers 45 kg for their checked luggage.
Apart from checked in luggage, passengers can carry maximum 7 kg in their carry-on baggage.
Currently, Biman operates Dhaka-Bangkok-Dhaka flight six days in a week with new Boeing 737-800 aircraft.
