Biman Suspends Three Officers Over Recent Collision Of Two Aircraft At HSIA


(MENAFN- Bangladesh Monitor)

Dhaka: Biman Bangladesh Airlines suspended three engineers who were found responsible for the collision between two Boeing aircraft in Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport on July 3.

Chief Engineer Md Harun-ur-Rashid Chowdhury, Engineering Officer Shah Haque Newaz and Junior Technical Officer Nurul Alam have been temporarily dismissed from duty, the airline said.

The national flag carrier issued an order on July 5 stating that the suspension order would take effect immediately.

'Earlier on June 4, a four-member inquiry committee was formed, headed by Biman's Chief of Flight Safety Captain Enamul Haque Talukder. Those responsible have been suspended in the light of the committee's recommendation,' read the letter.

Two Boeing aircraft of the Biman Bangladesh Airlines were damaged after a collision at Dhaka Airport on July 3 night. The collision took place between a Boeing 787 Dreamliner and a Boeing 737 aircraft and the wings of the two aircrafts were damaged in the incident.

The Boeing 787 arrived at Dhaka airport from Singapore on June 3 night.

The plane was taken to the hangar for routine maintenance at around 9:00 pm. A Boeing 737 aircraft was already in the hangar at that time. The Dreamliner, while attempting to enter the hanger, collided with the wing of the Boeing 737 which resulted in damage to the left and right wings of the Boeing 737 and 787 respectively.

This is the sixth such incident to have occurred since mid-February 2022, leading to several aircraft being grounded.

Aviation experts said that these incidents could have been avoided with careful operation of the aircraft and advanced maintenance.
