A crack in the cockpit windshield of a Biman Bangladesh Airlines Dreamliner prompted the pilot to return the Boeing 787-9 plane to Dhaka two hours after take-off.

The 285 passengers and 12 crew members, destined for Dammam in Saudi Arabia, remained safe during the incident on Saturday afternoon, said Tahera Khondker, a spokesperson for the national carrier.

Captain Tania Reza, the flight's captain, detected the crack and communicated with the control tower before deciding to return to Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport.
