Bangladeshi carrier United Airways has added two aircraft to its fleet in recent weeks.

The airline says it added an ATR 72 and a Boeing MD-83 , raising its fleet size to 11 aircraft. With these additions, it now has a Bombardier Dash 8 Q100, two Airbus A310s, three ATR 72s and five Boeing MD-83s in its fleet.

The airline has also signalled that it plans to add more aircraft to its fleet.

“We definitely want to increase our fleet as this is the right time to procure desired aircraft to expand [to] more domestic, regional and international destinations,” says its chairman and managing director Tasbirul Ahmed Choudhury.

Flightglobal’s FlightMaps Analytics shows that the airline operates domestic and international services out of Dhaka to destinations such as Chittagong, Bangkok, Kolkata and Dubai.
