Biman's regular flights on all its 15 international routes are set to face 
disruptions as the airline will use four of its Boeing planes for hajj flights 
starting this morning. Out of its small fleet of 13 aircraft, Biman Bangladesh 
Airlines operates two planes on its domestic and regional routes. The airlines 
would not be able to maintain flight schedule on the international routes with 
the remaining seven aircraft, said its insiders.

Besides, the national flag carrier is not allowed to fly newly-leased aircraft to 
Saudi Arabia as per a ban from the country. Biman has already stopped selling 
tickets to Riyadh, Jeddah and Dammam -- its most commercially viable 
destinations -- for the next two months, said the insiders, adding that the 
airline made the move fearing the flights would not run on schedule.During hajj 
every year, Biman operates flights with leased aircraft and also suspends its 
operation on different international routes to ensure smooth flights for a large 
number of pilgrims from Bangladesh.
