CAAB writes to India to resume flights
Civil Aviation Authority of Bangladesh (CAAB) yesterday wrote a letter to Indian authorities concerned, proposing to resume flights with India on various conditions, including Covid-19 vaccination of air passengers.
CAAB sent the letter to its Indian counterpart, sources said.
CAAB Chairperson Air Vice Marshal M Mafidur Rahman said, "India has already shown interest to resume flights with us. We are discussing whether flights can be started through an Air Bubble Agreement between the two countries."
Bangladesh suspended all international flights to and from the country on April 14, after the start of the second wave of the pandemic.
After being suspended for 16 days, operation of international flights resumed from May 1, except for 12 countries including India.
