GMG Airlines connects Saudi Arabia to Bangladesh
GMG Airlines has expanded its Middle Eastern footprint with the launch of flights between Dhaka in Bangladesh and the Saudi Arabian cities of Jeddah and Riyadh.
The airline, which markets itself as Bangladesh's largest private carrier, has received permission to operate 10 flights per week. It will run six flights from Dhaka to Jeddah and four from Dhaka to Riyadh.
"Entering into KSA market is a big boost for the airline considering the large number of Bangladeshi migrant workers living in Saudi Arabia,” said Christian Heinzmann, CEP of GMG Airlines. "GMG Airlines will soon add more routes and procure aircrafts to meet the growing demands of passengers."
The airline's recently procured Boeing 767-300 ER Long Range aircraft, which has a seating capacity of 264, will be deployed for KSA routes.
