As the effects of Covid-19 pandemic continue to take a toll on international travelling, US-Bangla Airlines on Tuesday operated a flight on its Dhaka-Kuala Lumpur route with only one single passenger.

 “It is not unusual for airlines to cancel international flights due to lack of passengers. However, the US-Bangla Airlines authorities decided to operate the flight despite having only one passenger,” US-Bangla Airlines General Manager (Public Relations) Kamrul Islam told Dhaka Tribune.

The private airline company has been gradually resuming international flights after the government lifted the travel ban in June, and restarted flights on its Dhaka-Kuala Lumpur route from August 16.

As a result, passenger Rafsan Jami found the rare opportunity to fly alone on commercial flight BS-313 to Kuala Lumpur.

Rafsan also thanked the US-Bangla Airlines authorities for the unique experience.

 “I am going to Malaysia today. The most interesting thing is I am the only passenger on-board,” he told journalists.
