"Air Asia Bangladesh" Launched

Wed Apr 26, 2006 7:15 pm

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.
been there, flown that

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,
