History

Biman Bangladesh was established on 4 January 1972 and started operations in February 1972, when a Douglas DC-3 that had seen action in World War II was given to the company as a present by the Bangladesh Air Force. Soon after, a Boeing 707 and Fokker F27 Friendship aircraft joined the airline's fleet, allowing Biman to begin international flights.

In 1983 Biman acquired Douglas DC-10 aircraft, and subsequently other planes such as the Airbus A310, Fokker F28 and British Aerospace BAe ATP. On January 31, 2003, the airline received 2 Boeing 737s.

The airline is 100% owned by the Bangladesh government. However, the government is now planning to offer 40% of Biman to foreign airlines, with the intention that the buyer will assume management control of the carrier. A further 9% of the airline will go to employees.
