Flight operation between Bangladesh and India is likely to resume tomorrow under the air bubble agreement signed between the two countries to facilitate the movement of passengers and goods.

“Hopefully, flights with India will start from September 4. Flights will operate between the two countries under an air bubble agreement,” State Minister for Civil Aviation and Tourism Mohammad Mahbub Ali told journalists at the airport on Thursday.

Earlier, the date for the India-Bangladesh flight resumption under the Air Bubble Agreement was postponed twice. According to the source, complications arose with the terms of the health protocol in corona. Besides this, the airlines had objections with some conditions.

Regarding the conditions, Chairman of Civil Aviation Authority of Bangladesh, Air Vice Marshal M Mafidur Rahman, said, “The conditions will be announced in a circular. We hope to be able to issue a circular by Thursday night (September 2).”
