English term or phrase: Biman Bangladesh Airlines
I am writing an article which mentions Biman, among other airlines. What I would like to have is the Bengali (or that in another Bangladeshi language) name of the airline transliterated into English.

For example, JAL/Japan Airlines is called 'Nihon Koku' in Japanese, and generally abbrebviated to 'Nikkoo'. And Air-India is called 'Er Indiya' within India... This is the sort of thing I am after.

I cannot read Sri Lankan scripts, so please use English letters.

Thank you!
