GD Assist arranges special chartered flight for NRBs

GD Assist arranged a special chartered flight to Paris and New York for the expatriate Bangladeshis, that departed from Hazrat Shahjalal Intl. Airport on Sunday.

Approximately 150 passengers were on board the special flight towards Paris and New York, said a press release.

Since the global lockdown came into effect, GD Assist has been actively trying to facilitate return of the expatriate Bangladeshis stranded in Bangladesh. As a part of that effort, GD Assist flown back more than 200 US immigrants, immigrant visa holders and green card holders to Chicago last month. The flight to Paris and NY is continuation of the same initiative of facilitating return of NRBs to their regular lives abroad.

GD Assist has successfully carried out evacuations to 3 Continents, 6 Destinations and served 600+ people in the process, who were stranded home and abroad due to the global lockdown situation caused by COVID-19 pandemic.

MD of GD Assist, Syed Moinuddin Ahmed said, “Approximately 150 passengers are on board the flight to Paris and New York that departed from Dhaka earlier today morning. This is the second time we are operating a special flight for the expatriate Bangladeshis and we are thankful to Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) and Civil Aviation Authority of Bangladesh (CAAB) for their unconditional support in this matter.”

GD Assist, a venture of Green Delta Insurance Company Ltd., is the largest healthcare management company of Bangladesh working in medical tourism for Bangladeshis.
