Dhaka-based US-Bangla Airlines starts operating the Bombardier Q400 turboprops in April 2014, with two of the type acquired through a third party.

Powered by two new-generation, 5,071-shaft horsepower (shp) PW150A engines, and capable of flying at a speed of up to 360 knots (667 km/h), the Q400 aircraft can quickly climb for a propellor airplane.

US-Bangla Airlines (www.us-banglaairlines.com) is one of the sister concerns of the US-Bangla Group, a United States-Bangladesh joint-venture company. The airline company was registered in 2010, and is planning to launch domestic flights in April 2014, with the two Dash 8/Q400 aircraft.
