Air-connectivity between Bangladesh & India resumes

AIR
The air-connectivity between Bangladesh and India resumed today with two flights leaving Dhaka under the air-bubble arrangement between the two countries.

The service was inaugurated at the Hazrat Shahjalal airport in Dhaka by the High Commissioner of India in Bangladesh Vikram Doraiswami and the Chairman of the Civil Aviation Authority of Bangladesh (CAAB) Air Vice Marshal Mafidur Rahman.

AIR correspondent reports, the resumption of the air connectivity between Bangladesh and India through the special mechanism of air-bubble arrangement has come as a big relief to people travelling between the two countries.

It has been welcomed specially by the people who needed urgent medical support in India. Two flights of the US Bangla airlines left the Hazrat Shahjalal International airport Dhaka for Kolkata and Chennai today.

Thanking the Civil Aviation Ministry for the start of the air-bubble service, High Commissioner Vikram Doraiswami said that it will be especially useful for people with medical emergencies.

He said the services will help in strengthening people to people contact between the two countries. Under the air-bubble arrangement three Bangladeshi airlines- Biman Bangladesh, US-Bangla Airlines and Novo Air will initially operate 28 flights a week to India.

Five Indian carriers including Air India, Vistara, Indigo, Spicejet and GoAIr will also run 28 flights a week between the two countries.

The flights between two countries have resumed after nearly eight months.

The travel between India and Bangladesh was disrupted due to the outbreak of Corona pandemic.
