After a long break of more than two and half months, commercial international flight operations are going to be started today in limited routes. Civil Aviation authority of Bangladesh (CAAB) issued permission for flight operations to United kingdom and Qatar as starter very recently.

Qatar airways will start Dhaka to Doha flights from today but Biman’s London flight will commence from 21 June.

Biman Bangladesh airlines will operate one flight every week to London after it starts from 21 June.

Qatar airways will operate three flights a week as Civil Aviation Authority allowed. But Qatar airways can only carry transit passengers on its flights for now.

Due to COVID-19 pandemic, Civil Aviation authority of Bangladesh stopped all international flights except those are in China-Bangladesh route from 21 March, 2020. This cancellation of flights has been increased several times since 15th June. In the meantime, domestic flights have been already started in limited routes and controlled number of passengers.
