Biman Bangladesh Airlines has decided to resume its flight operation on Dhaka-Doha-Dhaka route from September 7 after more than five months as the popular middle-eastern destination was suspended for containing COVID-19 pandemic outbreak in March.
The national flag carrier announced reopening of the route by issuing a press release today without detailing how many flights will be operated to the capital of Qatar initially.
When contacted a Biman official said that flight detail is likely to be uploaded at Biman’s website tomorrow.
On Aug 31, the private carrier US-Bangla airlines resumed its operation to Doha with two weekly flights while on Wednesday it decided to operate three weekly flights on the route from September 9 considering the passengers’ high demand.
On March 21, the CAAB first imposed a ban on commercial international flight operation to and from 10 countries – Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Turkey, Malaysia, Oman and Singapore – due to the pandemic.
