Bangladesh Biman Airlines has decided to resume operating commercial flights to Saudi Arabia from September 20, following a five-month suspension forced by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

The national flag carrier announced the development with a notice on its website on Wednesday

According to the notice, flights on the Dhaka-Dammam-Dhaka route will be operated every Monday and Thursday, while on the Dhaka-Riyadh-Dhaka route every Monday, Thursday, and Saturday, whereas, flights on the Chittagong-Jeddah-Dhaka route will be operated every Monday, starting from September 20. 

Moreover, state-run Biman Bangladesh Airlines is also expected to resume flights on the Dhaka-Jeddah-Chittagong route and the Dhaka-Jeddah-Dhaka route.

Biman has also announced that they will be operating a special flight on Friday to bring back the stranded Bangladeshis home from Jeddah.

Since March 21, the Civil Aviation Authority, Bangladesh, or CAAB, had shut down all domestic and international flights, in an effort to contain the spread of Covid-19 in the country.

On June 1, CAAB permitted operation of all domestic flights maintaining social distancing and following health guidelines, and international flights resumed on June 16.

The shortage of passengers forced Biman to cancel its flights on all domestic routes as well, except for Chittagong, Sylhet, and Syedpur.
