GMG Bangladesh

GMG Airlines of Bangladesh has leased one Boeing 747-300 which will be used to launch new daily nonstop flights to DXB-Dubai from its Dhaka-DAC base. This will come into effect from February 6th 08.

The flight timings are as follows :

Z5 91 Dep DAC 1530 Arr DXB 1900
Z5 92 Dep DXB 2100 Arr DAC 0320+1

Analysis :

It is really pleasing to see this privately owned Bangladeshi airline take the bold initiative of leasing a B 743 and flying it on a lucurative international medium haul route. Obviously, the main target market for Z5 is O&D on this route, but they have many interline SPA agreements with airlines for domestic Bangladesh routes which for sure they will try and ask for feeder traffic from their incoming flights to DXB from EU/UK/GCC to help feed their daily jumbo service.

I don't think you are correct, as Biman leased two 747 (the Govt. Owned ) , not the GMG ..
