Fly Dhaka is a new proposed airline in Bangladesh looking to launch its services by early 2022, similar to Air Astra who is another Bangladeshi airline start-up looking to do the same. The airline is planning to fly to 7 domestic destinations using a fleet of ATR 72-600 aircraft.
Fly Dhaka will operate domestic routes in its first year of service due to the local regulatory restrictions. Therefore, international services will not be available until at least early 2023.
Fly Dhaka hasn't currently announced the destinations they are planning to fly to. However, it's highly likely that they'll only fly domestic routes in the first year of launch due to local authority restrictions. In the second year of operations, the airline may look to operating international destinations.
Carry-on baggage allowance information will be available closer to the airline launch date.
All carry-on items must fit within the overhead lockers and under the seat so that they could be secured during the flight for safety reasons. Any items exceeding the dimensions won't be accepted by the airline. These items are also subject to security checks at the airport.
Any prohibited items including such as fluid exceeding 100ml will be confiscated by security. Containers with any fluid should be placed in a plastic bag for airport security checks.
Checked baggage allowance details will be released closer to the launch date.
However, as a general rule, checked baggage must not exceed 32kg (70lbs) in weight or it may be treated as cargo.
Information on online check-in isn't currently available. Please visit the airline website for more information.
If online check-in is available, you're required to check-in online prior to arriving at the airport as you would save time from queuing up at the airport. You may be able to receive your boarding passes once the online check-in has been completed.
At Alternative Airlines, we require that you arrive at the airline check-in counters at least 2 hours before the scheduled departure time for domestic flights and 3 hours for international flights.
You should have your travel documents at hand and ready including a visa for entry if required and report to the airline check-in counters once you arrived at the airport. The airline check-in desks are located in the designated check-in area listed on the departure information board at the airport.
At the moment, it's not clear whether Fly Dhaka would be offering a frequent flyer program.
More details will be released regarding the airline launch date.
Fly Dhaka isn't part of an airline alliance.
Fly Dhaka is planning to operate with a fleet of ATR 72-600 aircraft, a twin-turboprop aircraft that has a seating capacity of around 70 seats.
More information on the Airport hub awaits from Fly Dhaka closer to the launch date. It's unclear as to where Fly Dhaka will be based in Bangladesh.
