Biman Bangladesh Airlines has issued a request for proposal to wet lease up to four aircraft.

The carrier is looking for aircraft with a minimum of 250 seats in a two-class configuration, manufactured on or later than 1 September 1993, according to the tender documents. Bidders may offer one or more aircraft for lease.

The airline has specified that the aircraft must be capable of flying between Dhaka and Jeddah without any load penalty for a three-month period from the first week of September, possibly indicating that it intends to use them for hadj services.

Offers are due by 4 July.

The carrier's latest RFP follows an earlier tender request seeking to wet lease two aircraft with a minimum of 450 seats earlier this month, and for two Boeing 747-400s in March.
