Biman to resume Dhaka-London-Dhaka flight from Sunday

Flight operations on Dhaka-London-Dhaka route will resume on Sunday (June 21) after over two months of suspension due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“Biman flights will be operated once a week on Dhaka-London-Dhaka route from Sunday,” said Mokabbir Hossain, managing director and CEO, Biman Bangladesh Airlines.

Intending travellers are advised to contact helpline number- 01777715613-16.

Earlier on Tuesday, flight operations on international routes from Bangladesh resumed after over two months of suspension.

A flight of Qatar Airways left Dhaka while another flight from Doha arrived at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport on Tuesday, Group Captain AHM Towhidul Ahsan, Director of Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport told UNB.

Earlier on June 11, Civil Aviation Authority of Bangladesh (CAAB) Chairman Air Vice Marshall Muhammad Mafidur Rahman, said flight operations on international routes from Bangladesh will resume on June 16.

Flights on all routes will resume gradually, said Rahman adding” We need permission from the countries concerned to start air connectivity.”

On June 1, Civil Aviation authority permitted operation of all domestic flights maintaining social distancing and following health guidelines.

The domestic flights on Dhaka-Chattogram, Dhaka-Sylhet and Dhaka-Syedpur routes resumed on a limited scale.

However, the shortage of passengers forced Biman Bangladesh Airlines to cancel some of its flights on three domestic routes.
