How to get to | Bangladesh

This is part of a series of blog entries on how to get to countries and places. Here is a link to the index. I plan to eventually cover every country and some other places. If you have a request for a particular country or place please use the email me link at top right, or leave a comment.

You can arrive at Bangladesh by land (bus) from India or by air. Airlines flying to Bandladesh include:
  • Star Alliance - Singapore, Thai
  • Oneworld - Dragonair
  • Sky Team - China Southern
  • Other selected - Biman Bangladesh, most airlines from Persian Gulf and Indian subcontinent

TIP fares to/from Bangladesh tend to be high compared with India.

TIP check out fares to Malaysia, with flights to/from Bangladesh on low cost airline Air Asia.

TIP Bangladesh is tricky to include on an award ticket from Europe or a mileage based round the world ticket due to the absence of flights to/from Europe (other than Biman Bangladesh).
