    Bangladesh‘s Civil Aviation and Tourism Secretary Mohibul Haque reported Biman Bangladesh Airlines recorded a significant increase in ticket revenue in the first four months of 2019, primarily due to the suspension of manual ticketing practices and transition to exclusive use of an online ticketing system (The Daily Star/The Daily New Nation, 04/06/08-May-2019). The airline recorded BDT14 billion (USD165.6 million) in ticket revenue in the first four months of 2019, a 36% year-on-year increase.
