RAK Airways CEO Omar Jahameh said, “With our new routes to Bangladesh RAK Airways is delivering on its mandate to provide travellers with a value offering to a range of exciting destinations.”

Jahameh explained the destinations had been strategically chosen, “With flights to the nation’s capital, Dhaka, the centre of economy and commerce as well as to the coastal, tourist hot-spot, Chittagong, RAK Airways passengers can take advantage of the latent opportunities for trade and tourism that exist between the UAE and Bangladesh,” Jahameh concluded. With the set up of a permanent trade and display centre in the UAE, Bangladesh has shifted its focus from manpower exports and is now looking to the UAE as a full-fledged trading partner. Dhaka, Bangladesh’s capital, is renowned for its historical architecture and is also known as the ‘City of Mosques’. Chittagong, Bangladesh’s second largest city, is a vibrant sea-port and an attractive tourist-destination that boasts rainforests and lush, sandy beaches.

Included in the price of each RAK Airways flight to Bangladesh is a full hot meal and non-alcoholic beverages on-board all flights, a baggage allowance of 40kg per passenger as well as the normal hand baggage allowance and free shuttle service between the neighbouring emirates for each flight. Flights to Dhaka will be on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday leaving RAK International Airport at 1830 and arriving in Dhaka at 0100 the following day. Return flights from Dhaka will be on Monday, Thursday and Saturday leaving at 0200 and arriving at RAK International Airport at 0500.

Flights to Chittagong will be on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday leaving RAK International Airport at 1550 and arriving in Chittagong at 2245. Return flights from Chittagong will be on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday leaving at 2345 and arriving at RAK International Airport at 0205 the following day. —ismail@khaleejtimes.com.
