Biman Bangladesh Airlines is set to resume its flights with India from August 22 under the air bubble agreement.

Biman Bangladesh Airlines Deputy General Manager (Public Relations) Tahera Khandaker confirmed the matter.

“The state-of-the-art Dash 8-400 aircrafts made by Canada’s De Havilland will be used on the Dhaka-Delhi and Kolkata routes,” she said.

“The new aircraft has HEPA filtration technology, which will free the indoor air from bacteria, viruses and other germs in just four minutes,” the Biman Deputy General Manager said, adding that adequate space between the two seats, LED lighting and wide windows will make the journey comfortable and enjoyable.

Biman Bangladesh Airlines also issued a press release in this regard. “Flights on the Dhaka-Delhi route will be operated on Sundays and Wednesdays while flights on the Dhaka-Kolkata route will be operated on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays,” said the press release.

“Tickets will be available at sales centres or Biman call centres at 01990997997 and at offices of travel agencies,” reads the press release.

Passengers will have to take Covid-19 tests within 72 hours of the flights and must follow the health protocols.

Corona vaccination is not mandatory for travellers entering Bangladesh from India if they have a COVID-19 negative certificate. However, they have to stay in the strict home quarantine for 14 days upon their arrival in the country.

Earlier on Tuesday, Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen said Bangladesh is would resume flights with India from August 20 under an air bubble agreement between the two countries.
