Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen hoped that Biman Bangladesh Airlines will resume its flight operation on Dhaka-New York route in future.
"We expect that Biman will resume its operation on Dhaka-New York route in future," he said.
"The good news is that they have allowed Biman (to land in John F Kennedy Airport, New York on Sunday carrying the Prime Minister and her entourage members). So, I hope Biman is going to start its operation on Dhaka-New York route in future," he said.
Besides, Bangladesh signed an agreement with the Federation Aviation Authority (of the USA), he said, adding, "This is the reason to be optimistic."
He said the flight operation of Biman on Dhaka-New York route has been suspended for years.
Many modern and latest aircrafts have been added to the Biman fleet since Sheikh Hasina assumed in state power, he said.
The foreign minister said the Prime Minister's entourage members left the airport directly by cars without facing any hassle and with due honour.
Momen said: "Once this route of Biman comes into operation, Bangladeshi expatriates in the USA will be very happy."
