Another 132 passengers depart from Bangladesh for Dubai

A special flight arranged by Biman Bangladesh airlines has brought back 254 Bangladeshi nationals from Oman.

These Bangladeshis were stranded there due to the travel restrictions imposed to contain the spread of coronavirus.

The flight departed from Muscat and arrived at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport (HSIA) in Dhaka at 10:50am on Tuesday.

Biman's spokesperson Tahera Khondoker confirmed the arrival and departure to Dhaka Tribune.

Meanwhile, the national flag carrier operated a scheduled flight to Abu Dhabi, carrying 132 Bangladeshis, which took off from Dhaka airport at 6:55pm in the evening.

The airline is operating three weekly flights on the Dhaka-Dubai-Dhaka route on Monday, Thursday and Saturday, and three flights on the Dhaka-Abu Dhabi-Dhaka route on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday.

Biman resumed its scheduled flights to the UAE from Monday, taking 186 passengers on a flight to Dubai. 

On July 12, the Bangladesh government made it mandatory for every Bangladeshi going abroad to have a Covid-19 clearance certificate provided by any of the testing facilities approved by the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS).

Biman also announced that it would not fly passengers without Covid-19 negative certificates to the UAE.

The national flag carrier is now operating scheduled flights to three destinations --- London, Abu Dhabi and Dubai --- while continuing to operate special chartered flights amidst the pandemic.
