On 26 September, a US-Bangla Airlines Boeing 737-800 (S2-AJA) from Dhaka to Cox’s Bazar (Bangladesh) as BS141 couldn’t lower its nose gear when approaching Cox’s Bazar Airport. The pilots decided to divert to Chittagong Airport for a nose gear up landing (belly landing). After the landing, passengers evacuated the aircraft via some emergency slides. A US-Bangla Airlines spokesman said that nobody of the 164 passengers including 11 children and 7 crew members got injured.

On 12 March of this year, a US-Bangla Airlines Bombardier Dash 8 Q400 veered off the runway on landing at Tribhuvan Internationa Airport in Kathmandu, Nepal. 51 passengers were killed in that accident.
