Save Biman



BIMAN Bangladesh Airlines is the largest public limited company and the national flag carrier of the country. It has enjoyed monopoly on the domestic route since 1996. However, since its birth in 1972, Biman has incurred losses most of the time. In this modern era, when many companies in the global aviation industry are achieving substantive growth, it defies reason that Biman continues to be in the red.
Almost 10 million Bangladeshi workers working all over the world and annual hajj flights make the market very attractive for Biman. Very few companies in the aviation industry have such a market. Regrettably, however, mismanagement and malpractices seem to have held Biman back from realising its potential.
Over the years, different quarters have at different times alleged that a corrupt syndicate has confined Biman to its misery. The government needs to free Biman from the clutches of the syndicate immediately.
