Meghna Aviation is the the Bell 429’s first Bangladesh operator.


Meghna Aviation, a helicopter transport provider, has been named the first operator of the new Bell 429 in Bangladesh. The 429 will operate across the country, providing corporate, leisure and utility charter.

The deal was made at Rotorcraft Asia.

Sameer A. Rehman, Bell Helicopter’s managing director of Asia Pacific said: “As Bangladeshi operators move to twin-engine helicopters to bring more performance to their missions, it’s critical that the platform they choose can bring unparalleled value and excellent reliability, while minimizing operating economics. The Bell 429 delivers that and more. It is with pride we announce Meghna Aviation has chosen the Bell 429 to meet its growing needs for reliable air transportation for its operating bases in Bangladesh,”

“The Bell 429 is a perfect complement to the Bell 407GX that Meghna Aviation currently operates. We are proud of our association with our friends at Meghna and will deliver a helicopter with unmatched performance and world-class service and support for which the Bell 429 is world renowned.”
