Civil Aviation Authority of Bangladesh (CAAB) has suspended international flight operations for a week from April 14 as the government is going to impose a week-long strict lockdown to contain the spread of Covid-19.

No restriction will be imposed on the movement of chartered, cargo, and special flights and air ambulance, CAAB sources said.

 Earlier, CAAB suspended passenger flight operations on all domestic routes following a weeklong countrywide restriction from April 5.

 Besides, on April 1, the civil aviation authority suspended the entry of passengers from all European countries, except the UK, and 12 other countries to Bangladesh from 3 April.
