300 Japanese citizens to leave by chartered flight on Thursday

More than 300 Japanese nationals stranded here due to COVID-19 pandemic are set to leave for Tokyo by a special chartered flight of Biman Bangladesh airlines tomorrow morning

The Biman’s Boeing 777 aircraft carrying the Japanese citizens will leave Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport (HSIA) at 10 am tomorrow for Narita Airport of Japan, Biman’s Managing Director and CEO Md Mokabbir Hossain told newsmen over social media today.

The Japanese Embassy  chartered the flight of the Biman through the Bangladesh government, the airlines sources said.

On Monday, 269 US citizens left here by a special chartered flight of the Qatar airways while earlier 225 Malaysians and 139 Bhutanese citizens also left here through chartered flights on their personal choice amid the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic.

Governments across the world have been arranging chartered flights to take back their nationals from different countries as regular air connectivity is almost suspended round the globe due to the outbreak of the killer bugs.
