Bangladesh has decided to resume limited international flights from June 16 after a three-month suspension of flights due to the COVID-19 epidemic.
“We will continue Biman Bangladesh Airlines flight on Dhaka-London-Dhaka route and have given approval to Qatar Airways to initially operate three weekly flights on the Dhoa-Dhaka-Doha sector in a condition of carrying only transit passengers after June 15,” Civil Aviation and Tourism Secretary Mohibul Haque stated today.
The senior secretary stated the Civil Aviation Authority, Bangladesh (CAAB) has taken all preparations to operate the international flight following the health guideline of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).
Meanwhile, the CAAB issued a notification regarding the decision, saying that airlines must follow its health guidelines to ensure healthy and social distance when operating international flights.
From June 1, Bangladesh resumed domestic flights on a limited scale after more than two months.
