Bangladesh is going to continue its air connectivity with neighbor India from October 28 under an “air bubble” pattern, after nearly eight months of flight halt for containment of COVID-19 pandemic, reports BSS.
Three Bangladeshi airlines — Biman Bangladesh Airlines, US-Bangla Airlines, and Novo Air — will initially serve 28 flights a week while five Indian carriers — Air India, Vistara, IndiGo, SpiceJet, and GoAir — will operate the same amount of flights a week, according to a post uploaded to the foreign ministry’s official Facebook page today.
Referring to the Bangladesh Civil Aviation Authority (CAAB) chairman, the foreign ministry announced Biman is scheduled to operate flights on Dhaka-Delhi-Dhaka and Dhaka-Kolkata-Dhaka routes, US-Bangla Airlines on Dhaka-Chennai, and Novo Air on the Dhaka-Kolkata-Dhaka route.
According to CAAB, the ministry stated five Indian airlines will operate flights on Dhaka-Delhi-Dhaka, Dhaka-Kolkata-Dhaka, Dhaka-Chennai-Dhaka, and Dhaka-Mumbai-Dhaka routes.
Meanwhile, the newly named Indian High Commissioner Vikram Doraiswami displayed his delight over the arrangement of flight operation.
On October 9, the Indian High Commission in Bangladesh declared the resumption of online visa applying assistance for Bangladesh nationals.
Till now, visas will be given in nine categories including medical, business, employment, journalists, diplomatic personnel, officials, UN officials, and UN diplomats, said the Bangladesh foreign ministry.
