A question regarding the runway extension.
Does anyone know if there is going to be a taxiway linking the newly extended part of the runway to the western apron?It looks as though there may be room but I don't remember seeing one on the plans.
Also looking at the above picture is there going to some area set aside for remote parking for the MAEL hangar or for somewhere for aircraft fresh out of the hangar for testing,prior to test flying?

The new taxiway will be to the right of the runway extension as you look at the image above, construction of this is underway.

The MAEL hangar is at the end of what was the old 'short' runway that runs across the main runway (above). There is adequate tarmac surface for remote parking.

Thanks for that BhamJim.
On a different note nice to see pax numbers continuing to grow,particularly on long haul flights.Despite the competition EK can boast loads of 420 plus on both outbound flights yesterday(Wednesday) and today's EK40 had 440 on board.However anyone know why yesterday's PA flight did not operate?

I heard something about it being due to Eid? Not sure how much truth there is in that though?

That new section of the A45 will be the new road Layout, they thought about tunnelling under but this proved more expensive.

Remember this is the UK, and we need to save billions of pounds, LOL

BIMAN BANGLADESH NEXT AT BHX ??????

Another great coup for BHX if this pays off. Fingers Crossed.

Biman plans biweekly flights to New York by April
Eyes also set on Los Angeles, Canada routes
Jasim Khan
Publish : 08 Nov, 2013 00:00:00

The national flag carrier is likely to fly to New York from Dhaka via Birmingham twice a week by April next while the authorities are also planning to launch services on the Dhaka-Hong Kong-Los Angeles and Dhaka-Canada routes.

"A U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (US FAA) inspection team is due in Bangladesh in early 2014 to audit the possible Category 1 operations," Mr Kevin John Steele, Managing Director and CEO of the Biman Bangladesh Airlines Ltd said in a letter to the chairman of the Civil Aviation Authority of Bangladesh (CAAB) last week.

If the outcome of the inspection is positive, the Biman would resume its Dhaka-New York flight, Mr Kevin said.

"When we receive our next 2 new B777-300ER aircraft, we are looking to dry-lease one of those aircraft to a UK-based company which will help as an alternative to fly Biman aircraft to the USA, if the USFAA does not graduate Biman for Category 1," Mr Kevin clarified in his plan on the US and Canada operations.

According to him, the US requirements for any airline flying to that country are that either the airline must be registered in a country where the CAA has a Category 1 rating or wet-lease an aircraft from a company that is registered in a Category-1 country.

As part of the Biman's America plan, it now intends to fly on the Dhaka-Birmingham (BHX)-John F Kennedy (JFK) airport route instead of the earlier planned Dhaka-Manchester-JFK route.

"The option is better, because a greater number of Bangladeshis are living in Birmingham than in Manchester and the Birmingham offer is more commercially viable than the Manchester Airport's offer," Mr Kevin wrote.

However, Mr Kevin said as the Biman was expecting 4 B777-300ERs plus possibly the two (dry-lease) B777-200ERs, the Biman was also weighing the option of the Dhaka-Hong Kong-Los Angeles operation to take advantage of the open US skies.

Earlier, on Aug 17 last Bangladesh had signed an open sky agreement with the United States to resume its flights to New York.

The national flag career would also revive its maiden flight to Canada within te next year.

A Bangladesh delegation visited Canada in the last week of September for finalising an agreement with that country to this end.

"Once the deal is concluded, we will be able to start flights to Canada. Three passenger aircraft and three cargo aircraft will operate," said a high official of the Biman.

CAAB Flight Safety and Regulations Department Director SM Nazmul Anam said a technical team would arrive from the US to look into a number of issues, including the security arrangement at the Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport in Dhaka.

"We have to wait for the new Canada Air Service Agreement (ASA) before we decide on when we can operate our flights to Toronto. We, however, are disappointed that the Canadian authorities have not provided us with intermediate fifth freedom for flights to and from Europe, especially because the US, UK and European authorities have already granted it to us," he added.

BIMAN likely to route last DC.10 Flight via BHX in February 2014

In an update to a previous report on the final operations of Biman Bangladesh’s DC-10 operations (see story here), and recent report on the excellent Austrian Wings site has uncovered some updated details of the date and route of the final flight.
Biman is the last airline in the world to operate the McDonnell Douglas DC-10 in passenger service.
The airline has seemingly negotiated to send its last aircraft to the USA to be preserved in a museum. The final flight is planned for February 2014 and will route from Dhaka to Seattle, with a stop in the UK (likely to be Birmingham or Manchester). The flight will be open for bookings as a regular flight, which would make it a perfect choice for enthusiasts wishing to take part in this historic event.
If the exact date is announced I will report it on here along with any other details. Otherwise, you may find details on the Biman website.

Had the opportunity to jump seat on Biman DC10 (the same frame which is planned to arrive at BHX) couple of weeks back, will post the pics here soon! Btw, I will be flying into BHX this week
