The CAAB decision on Sunday temporary lifts directives previously issued on September 27

The Civil Aviation Authority of Bangladesh (CAAB) has relaxed travel guidelines for flights of Biman Bangladesh Airlines and Saudi Arabian Airlines to Saudi Arabia until October 24.

The decision was taken to facilitate the carrying of Bangladeshi expatriates to various destinations in Saudi Arabia, including Dammam, Jeddah and Riyadh. 

The CAAB decision on Sunday temporary lifts directives previously issued on September 27. 

According to the September 27 circular on travel guidelines for international flights, no more than 260 passengers may be seated on wide-body twin-aisle aircraft and no more than 140 on narrow-body single-aisle aircraft.

The circular also said: “Vacant seats shall include at least the last row of Economy Class and minimum one seat of Business Class (unless exempted by special consideration) dedicated for any suspected Covid-19 positive passenger.”

The restrictions came into effect from October 1.

Although the seating restrictions will not apply for Biman and Saudi Arabian airlines flights to Saudi Arabia until October 24, effective measures will be taken to ensure the health and safety of passengers, CAAB said.
