Biman plane makes emergency landing.
A domestic flight of Biman Bangladesh Airlines made emergency landing in Hazrat Shahjalal International airport today, just a week into the tragic US-Bangla plane crash in Nepal.
A Saidpur bound Dash-8 took off from Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport, Dhaka, at around 12:28pm, an official of the airport’s control tower told The Daily Star requesting anonymity.
“The small-bodied aircraft was forced to make an emergency landing at the airport around 12:50pm as it faced pressure problems in its engine”, he added.
All the passengers and crew members were reportedly safe after the technical glitch.
The incident comes just a week after the US-Bangla Airlines plane crash in Kathmundu, Nepal, where 51 persons including 26 Bangladeshi nationals died during landing.
