Time for some more expansion from Air Asia. They have founded a joint venture with East West Air of Bangladesh to start Air East Asia, which will launch with two A320s from Air Asia's order as far as I understand. Domestic as well as international services.

So good bye Biman?

Not so soon. Good for Bangladesh. Bangladeshis will finally have a choice of flying relatively new a/c.



An airplane might disappoint any pilot but it'll never surprise a good one.

It's kinda interesting to see how India's neighbours are into starting new airlines just like India. If they don't realize that India has something called a 'market' which none of them have, we are going to see a lot of closed airlines in South Asia.


Never argue with idiots. They will bring you down to their level, and beat you with experience.

Well, I wouldn't say "relatively new", but rather refer to "brand-new" in this case. Could be well a case of Malaysia Mk II: Air East Asia is taking over most of the domestic routes from Biman, and Biman can focus on replaceing the DC-10s.

The market is for them to fly into India, however there would be decent demand in Bangladesh as well, its not that bad a place! But nowehere near its bigger neighbour, so you do more DAC-CCU, DAC-BOM and DAC-DEL flights in fact the latter two sectors have almost no service, I know people who've actually had to do DAC-BKK-DEL, quite ridiculous if you ask me! If you can't let the market fly to you, then you fly to the market.

I agree, I would of thought that Air Asia, Thai Air Asia and Indonesia Air Asia would of got the A320's first  Smile I supose it makes sense for future operations!

Hopefully this will go through, although I have yet to hear details on East West Airlines -- they have been a paper airline for a few years, so far have had no flying experience. Air Asia, however, is a master of LCC, and I am sure with their supervision, Air East Asia will do just fine.

Best,
