US-Bangla Airlines has signed a one-year ACMI contract with Ukraines SkyUp Airlines (PQ, Kyiv Boryspil) covering two B737-800s.

ACMI leasing is an agreement between two airlines, where the lessor agrees to provide an aircraft, crew, maintenance and insurance (ACMI) to the lessee - in return for payment on the number of block hours operated.

UR-SQB (msn 40153) was ferried from Hurghada to Dhaka on April 5, 2024, and began operating for the Bangladeshi carrier on April 7, Flightradar24 ADS-B data shows, reports Switzerland-headquartered ch-aviation, a data service company offering airline intelligence solutions to a wide variety of aviation industry shareholders.

The aircraft is currently deployed on routes to Dubai International and Chennai. SkyUp said that the second aircraft will be ferried to Bangladesh by the end of April 2024. The contract is currently scheduled to continue through March 31, 2025.

While US-Bangla Airlines does not publish schedules for the wet-leased aircraft, SkyUp said its B737s will operate flights from Dhaka to the UAE, Oman, Qatar, Malaysia, Singapore, and the Seychelles.

The aircraft replaced another B737-800 wet-leased by US-Bangla Airlines from KlasJet. LY-TFS (msn 37741) was ferried back from Dhaka via Muscat to Sofia for maintenance on April 7.

The Bangladeshi carriers in-house fleet comprises six B737-800s, ten ATR72-600s, three DHC-8-Q400s, and two A330-300s, which are soon to debut in revenue service.
