Biman Bangladesh Airlines Managing Director and CEO Mosaddique Ahmed has said if the current trend of flight cancellation continues, transportation for Hajj pilgrims will be tough. “But people need not be afraid.

If all the concerned stakeholders cooperate, we will overcome the crisis,” the Biman CEO added in a briefing at the Kurmitola head office on Wednesday. He also vowed to do everything possible to overcome the crisis.
