Govt to allow Air Asia to fly from Ctg
Staff Correspondent

The ministry of civil aviation has decided in principle to allow Air Asia Berhad, a Malaysian low-cost carrier, to operate flights from Shah Amanat International Airport, Chittagong.
The decision was taken at a meeting held at the secretariat on Thursday with the state minister for civil aviation and tourism, Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir, in the chair.
The Malaysian company will be allowed to operate flights five days a week from the Chittagong airport, said a source in the meeting.
A commercial agreement will be signed very soon between the Civil Aviation Authority of Bangladesh and Air Asia Berhad.
The government was thinking of allowing more foreign airlines to operate flights from Bangladesh as aircraft shortage forced the national carrier to shrink international flights, aviation officials said.


There has been no word on Bangladeshi start up East West Airlines, which was to start up Air East Asia, 49% owned by Air Asia. From this report, it looks like it is Air Asia (not Air East Asia) that is starting service. I wonder if it will be Air Asia to KUL or Thai Air Asia to BKK?

Best,
