Airports in Bangladesh, Airlines in Bangladesh

Bangladesh is a newly formed country in the year 1971. This country faced a military rule almost for a span of 15 years and though democracy was restored in the year 1990.

The political scene is quite volatile. The airports in Bangladesh do receive lots of tourists from international nations.

Most of this country has been formed from the alluvial plain that is found in the Ganga-Brahmaputra river delta.

The Bangladesh international airports are the doorways for global tourists to enter into this country. Flooding is very normal in this region and the locals have learnt to adapt to this regular occurrence. However, excess flooding in the years of 1988, 1998 and even 2004 lead to heavy losses both in terms of life and property.

Bangladesh is mainly a flat landscape with numerous bamboo, palm and mango trees. The tourists coming to the Bangladesh international airports enjoy themselves in visiting the wildlife of the country, the principal of which is the Royal Bengal Tiger.
