Unfortunately not. They have now re-scheduled with the airport to put the re-commencement date back to the 28th March 2010. The main reason for delays was due to not getting clearance into JFK, but also due to the later than planned arrival of the B777. This should also give the airline the time to sort out their new B777 ready for service.

Also, they now plan to operate their flights out of MAN from T2 instead of T1, which was planned before the setback.

What a surprise. The Airline has now come forward and admitted, their new service is unlikely to commence this year, although they have "re-assured" the airport it will be going ahead next year...

...We shall see...

Apparently Andrew Harrison from MAN has stated internally that from 2nd November, Biman Bangladesh will start a 2 weekly DAC-LHR-MAN-DAC service, and then after a month, (presumably when the rights have been given to them again), they will start a 2 weekly DAC-MAN-JFK and return service instead. Both sets of flights will use the B777-300. Obviously, this is very much subject to change! :D

Also some online agencies taking bookings, but, it is not on actual Biman website yet.

I also stand corrected, the flights are now fully bookable on the Biman Bangladesh website.

I notice the Manchester office has re-appeared on the Biman Bangladesh website (on Portland Street).
While I don't know if it ever closed, it was certainly removed from the website for a while, not sure when it was re-added?

According to their newly updated route map on the website, Biman look to be aiming for a DAC-MAN-JFK flight again.

That would make 4 scheduled airlines using MAN as a stop off to the USA, no other airport in Europe has that to my knowledge, so, see,s we are doing something right.

After Manchester appeared in the in flight route map, and not knowing if it was a mistake (could have been an old map inserted by accident), the CEO of Biman has now confirmed Manchester is going to be relaunched.

In an interview about cargo, He said new destinations would be launched in 3 tiers. New short hail routes, then mid haul (such as Tokyo and Hong Kong), then long haul (referencing specifically Manchester, New York and Rome).
