Biman Bangladesh started to fly in 1972, when a DC-3 that had seen action at the World War II was given to the company as a present by the Bangladesh Air Force. Soon after, a Boeing 707 and Fokker F-27 planes joined the airline's fleet, allowing Biman to establish international flights.

In 1983, Biman acquired DC-10 aircraft, and throught the years, other planes such as the Airbus A310, Fokker F-28 and British Aerospace ATP's were incorporated. On January 31, 2003, the airline received 2 Boeing 737s.
