Novoair may resume flights to Kolkata from March 27

Novoair, a private carrier in Bangladesh, plans to resume daily passenger flight operations on the Dhaka-Kolkata route from March 27.

From Dhaka, the flights would depart at 5.20pm (local time) daily and at 6.40pm (local time) from Kolkata, Novoair said in a press release on Wednesday.

Novoair will also announce a holiday package very soon, it added.

India's civil aviation directorate has already given its nod for the resumption of scheduled international commercial flights from March 27.

Commercial flights on the route have been suspended since 25 March, 2020, in view of the pandemic. However, special flights were allowed to operate between Bangladesh and India, under the air-bubble agreement.

Currently, Novoair is operating domestic flights daily, including eight between Dhaka and Cox’s Bazar.
