The government has decided to resume Biman Bangladesh Airlines’ commercial flights to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) from Thursday.

“We have decided to resume Biman’s regular commercial flight operations to Dubai and Abu Dhabi from July 9,” said Civil Aviation and Tourism Ministry Senior Secretary Mohibul Haque on Tuesday, reports BSS.

The senior secretary said the national flag carrier will operate three weekly flights to each of two UAE’s destinations on Dhaka-Dubai-Dhaka and Dhaka-Abu Dhabi-Dhaka routes carrying regular passengers on both ways.

Earlier, Biman decided to resume the flights to Dubai and Abu Dhabi from July 6 and 7 respectively, but on July 5, the national carrier amended its decision and suspended all scheduled flights to UAE showing unavoidable reasons.

The passengers, both non-residents and permanent residents of the UAE, must have to take entry permission from UAE’s official websites to avail the flights, Biman sources said earlier.

On June 1, Biman resumed its international flight operation through Dhaka-London route after more than two months of suspension enforced to contain the outbreak of Covid-19 pandemic.

Currently, the national carrier is operating a weekly flight with its Dreamliner 787-8 to London on every Sunday.

The UAE’s Dubai based Emirates Airlines and Sharjah based Air Arabia have also resumed flight operations from here to Dubai and Sharjah respectively.
