Bangladeshi start-up Fly Dhaka close to obtaining AOC


Fly Dhaka is in the “final stages” of securing an air operator’s certificate (AOC) and is preparing to launch domestic operations.

Fly Dhaka chief executive Mollah Fazle Akbar said: “The start-up has made significant progress in securing the appropriate aircraft for its soon to be launched domestic operations.”

The privately-owned start-up was incorporated as a limited liability company on 4 May 2021.

The airline is helmed by Bangladeshi entrepreneur and former minister Anisul Islam Mahmud, who serves as managing director, and Akbar as chief executive.

Akbar added: “We are thrilled to partner with AirAsia… With AirAsia Consulting’s guidance, we will seek new opportunities and ultimately achieve our main goal of being recognised as the country’s best low-cost airline.

“We are also excited that we will likely be the only local Airbus operator in Bangladesh, utilising AirAsia’s vast experience of the A320 family of aircraft,” he added.
