Members present were Proprietor and director of Hillside travels, Hussain Travel, Kushiara Travels, Imran Travels, Milfa Travel, Surma travels ,Aerolex travels and Sonar Bangla travels

Chair Opened the meeting with thanks to all members and every members present took part in the discussion regarding BGM and current Market situation. Chair thanked for attending  general meeting which was very fruitful. As it is our responsibility to insure BGM takes place at the end of the term the meeting decided to hold BGM on Saturday 22nd June 2019.
Other important issues was discussed including counter sales, bookings, sub-agents, July seat shortage. It was good to meet after a while and  thanked the present Executive Members and all members for their hard work this term.

The members present were pleased to see the addition of Dreamliner 787 into Biman fleet which carries 36% less passengers than Boeing 777. They were hopeful as this aircraft is smaller so direct flight from Sylhet should have started in April. If the delay is security then Dhaka security may be transferred to Sylhet . The meeting demanded direct flight be started immediately .
From 5th July 2019 to 14th September 2019 flights will be operated with Dreamliner 787 with reduced passengers capacity of 36%. July is school holiday season they need more capacity not less. Biman has 2 more slots in Heathrow that can be used but due to shortage of aircraft it was not possible. With the present capacity Biman will not be able to carry all the Biman loyal passengers so the members requested agents of other airlines to make preparations to accommodate the surplus passengers possibly with a meet and greet service at Dhaka.
