Dense fog continues to disrupt communication services
Almost all modes of commutation have severely been disrupted as dense fog continues to sweep across the country. Flight operations at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport in Dhaka were disrupted for six hours on Sunday due to dense fog, leading to cancellation of all domestic flights and diversion of an international flight. “The airport was covered with thick fog, leading to diversion of a Kuala Lumpur-Dhaka fight of Biman Bangladesh Airlines to Kolkata. Besides, all domestic flights were cancelled as the runway visibility dropped since 5:10am,” Civil Aviation Authority of Bangladesh Public Relations Officer Rezaul Karim was quoted by UNB as saying. Poor runway visibility forced the airport authorities to stop both inbound and outbound flight operations, the officer said, adding that a domestic flight left the airport after 11am as fog disappeared. Meanwhile, ferry services on the Paturia-Daulatdia route were suspended for six hours due to dense fog, reports our Manikganj correspondent. “Ferry services on the route were suspended from 4:30am because of the poor visibility caused by thick fog,” said Nasir Mohammad Chowdhury, assistant general manager of Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Corporation at Aricha. Six ferries carrying passengers and vehicles were marooned in the Padma River. Seven ferries in Paturia and three in Daulatdia remained docked owing to the navigational hazard. The services, however, resumed around 10:30am as the fog disappeared, Nasir added.
