Regent Airways (incorporated as HG Aviation Limited) is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Habib Group - the Chittagong-based conglomerate engaged in a diverse portfolio of business endeavors which include power, steel, readymade garments, textiles, spinning, cement, paper and fertilizer among others.
The airline began commercial flight operations from 10th November, 2010 using its own fleet of two Canadian-built Bombardier Dash-8-Q300 aircraft, each seating 50 passengers in a single-class layout. The aircraft is known for its exceptional reliability and passenger comfort.
Now our fleet consists of 05 (five) aircrafts. Among those 02 (two) Dash-8-Q300 aircraft reputed for its exceptional reliability and passenger comfort, which are maintained to European standards, 01(one) Dash-6 400 and 02 (two) Boeing 737-700 Next Generation aircraft which was awarded type certification by the FAA, In addition, the newer 737 models offer a modern flight deck using the most advanced navigation technology available today. The fleet is planning to expand soon with larger jet aircraft as Regent is expanding more international destinations reaching beyond the borders of Bangladesh.
The 737 Boeing Sky Interior features modern sculpted sidewalls and window reveals that draw passenger eyes to the airplane's windows, giving passengers a greater connection to the flying experience. The design offers larger, pivoting overhead storage bins that add to the openness of the cabin. The bins give more passengers room to store a carry-on roll-aboard near their own seat, adding both extra convenience and extra leg room.
