Fleet

Air Bangladesh (no relation to Bangladesh Biman Airlines) operates only one jet aircraft, a Boeing 747-269B(SF) with registration mark S2-ADT (at November 2005). It's painted in a basic and faded Kalitta Air livery but without any actual Kalitta Air titles. The aircraft was in storage at Kent International Airport with a new registration mark of N801KH (at September 30, 2006). The aircraft has been grounded over safety concerns on numerous occasions at various airports. It was delivered in August 2004.

As of 31st December 2007, ex S2-ADT re-registered as N801KH as been scrapped at the former RAF Ahlhorn Air Base in Germany. [http://www.jetphotos.net/viewphoto.php?id=6067065&nseq=0]

Banned in the EU

One Air Bangladesh aircraft, a Boeing 747-269B with the registration mark S2-ADT, is on the List of air carriers banned in the EU (as of July 2006).

The rationale for the decision by the European Commission was the following (paraphrased):
*During ramp inspections performed by German authorities under the SAFA programme evidence of serious safety deficiencies on the part of Air Bangladesh with regard to a certain aircraft of its fleet came to light (LBA-D-2005-0003, LBA-D-2005-0004 and LBA-D-2005-0004).
*The air carrier in question, Air Bangladesh, did not respond adequately and timely to an enquiry by the civil aviation authority of Germany regarding the safety aspects of its operation. This demonstrates in the opinion of the Commission a lack of transparency or communication. Upon the date that the ban was imposed (March 22, 2006) the member state had not had any opportunity to verify whether the safety deficiencies had been corrected.
*The regulatory authorities of Bangladesh, which have the responsibility for regulatory oversight of Air Bangladesh, have not exercised an adequate oversight on one specific aircraft used by this carrier in accordance with the obligations imposed on them under the Chicago Convention.
* Therefore and on the basis of the common criteria [http://ec.europa.eu/transport/air/safety/flywell_en.htm Fly Well portal] (Which contains links to the common air transport policy) en icon, "European Commission", March 22 2006] the Commission assessed that Air Bangladesh should be submitted to a strict operational restriction.
