The US Department of State and US Embassy Bangladesh have arranged a special chartered flight for US citizens and their families departing Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport in Dhaka on Monday.

This flight will include a Dhaka to Doha, Qatar leg and an onward connecting flight to Dulles International Airport in Washington. Passengers will remain on the airplane in Doha.

All passengers must agree to reimburse the US government for the flight by signing a promissory note for approximately the amount of a full-fare economy flight, or comparable alternate transportation, to the designated destination that would have been charged immediately prior to this crisis.

This form must be signed and presented before boarding. No cash or credit card payments will be accepted at the airport. Passengers will be responsible for any arrangements or costs (lodging, onward destination or local transportation, etc) beyond Washington, D.C.

The exact departure time and routing of this chartered flight are subject to change. –
