Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Monday, 6 April 2009

Singapore Airlines Cargo has launched a weekly westbound Boeing 744 freighter service to the Bangladeshi capital of Dhaka.

 The routing for the new service will be Singapore–Dhaka–Sharjah–Brussels, departing Singapore on Friday.

This new capacity to Dhaka is in addition to the bellyhold capacity available on Singapore Airlines' existing passenger service. The airline commenced passenger services to Dhaka in October 1986.

“This service will play an important role in opening up Bangladesh’s trade links with direct access to its export markets in Europe and the USA, and enter new emerging markets in South America via Brussels. The greater accessibility to Dhaka will certainly help to promote the city as a major gateway for the freight industry in Bangladesh,” said Mr Tan Tiow Kor, Senior Vice President Sales and Marketing.

Dhaka is a bustling city with a population of about ten million people. It is the country’s major gateway for imports and exports. It is also the industrial, commercial, cultural, educational and political centre for Bangladesh.

The main export item from Dhaka is readymade garments; other major exports include finished leather and leather products, fresh fruits, vegetables, medicines, jute and jute products, textile fabrics, handicrafts, ceramics and tea.

Major imports into Bangladesh include raw materials for garments, electronic goods, pharmaceutical raw materials, electronics and computer parts, telecommunications equipment and mobile phone accessories.
