Flights scheduled for twice a week
US-Bangla Airlines is set to resume its Dhaka- Kolkata flights from Thursday (October 21) under the air bubble agreement inked between Bangladesh and India.
The flights would leave Dhaka at 9:45am every Thursday and Saturday, and land in Kolkata at 10:45am (local time). On the same days, the flights would depart from Kolkata at 11pm and arrive in Dhaka at 12:30pm.
The passengers would need to secure a negative Covid-19 RT-PCR test report within 72 hours before boarding the flights. They will also need to get molecular tests done on their own expenses after landing in Kolkata.
All the passengers are now allowed to travel to India under the air bubble deal following the current visa related directives.
With all the taxes and surcharges applied US-Bangla’s Dhaka-Kolkata one way flight ticket price has been set at Tk7,226 and the price of round-trip is Tk12,733.
On September 2, the Civil Aviation Authority of Bangladesh (CAAB) accepted the Indian Civil Aviation Ministry's proposal to resume Bangladesh-India air bubble flights on September 4.
Later, India and Bangladesh mutually decided to increase the frequency of flights under the Air Bubble arrangement from 7 to 21 per week per country.
