Bangladesh's Regent Airways expects to begin its first international service to Kuala Lumpur from the end of May, using Boeing 737-700 aircraft.
The carrier will also launch services to Bangkok, Singapore and Hong Kong, although it has not determined any launch dates or frequencies for those routes.
"As this is our first expansion into international operations, we [are] staggering the launching of destinations in phases rather than opening them all up together. However, we expect that by July we would have all four planned destinations up and running," says Regent's chief executive Imran Asif.
"Frequencies to these destinations were decided based upon market conditions and commercial risk analysis, as well as provisions available in the air service agreements and the optimum utilisation of the two 737-700 aircraft."
Regent Airways is on track to receive two 737-700s in May, with both aircraft on six-year leases from International Lease Finance Corp.
Data from Flightglobal Pro shows that the airline operates two Bombardier Dash 8 Q300 turboprops.
