Bangladesh is set to resume international flight operations from June 16 after a hiatus of almost two months due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Civil Aviation Authority of Bangladesh (CAAB) Chairman Air Vice-Marshal Md Mafidur Rahman confirmed the matter to Dhaka Tribune on Thursday and said that Operations will resume in compliance with the principles of health rules and discretion.
For the time being, Biman Bangladesh Airlines will be able to transport passengers on the Dhaka-UK-Dhaka route, and Qatar Airways will only be able to transport transit passengers on the Doha-Dhaka-Doha route.
Earlier, on March 21, the CAAB shut down all domestic and international flights in an effort to contain the spread of Covid-19 in the country.
The ban was later extended in several phases.
