Biman Bangladesh Airlines has floated an international tender to procure two aircraft on lease.
The airlines' move came after it grounded two aircraft from its fleet of 13 passenger carriers two-week ago. Hundreds of travellers were left stranded when the aircraft were grounded.
The tender for the two Airbus planes will open 23 March next, according to acting managing director of Biman Mahmudur Rahman.
Biman's flight schedule collapsed February 17 when four DC-10 aircraft flying on different international routes were grounded at the same time.
A DC-10 plane on Dhaka-New York route was grounded due to technical faults in Brussels February 16.
Two other DC-10 aircraft remained grounded for the same reason at a hanger of the Zia International Airport.
Biman's another DC-10 plane has been kept at a hangar for C-check.
The national flag carrier operates flights on seven domestic and 26 international routes in three continents.
