Cox’s Bazar flight resumes tomorrow

Domestic air-connectivity between the capital and beach town Cox’s Bazar will be restored tomorrow after nearly two months of suspension due to containment of the second wave of COVID-19 pandemic.

The Civil Aviation Authority, Bangladesh (CAAB) has taken the decision to resume the flight operation on Cox’s Bazar, the country’s most popular tourist destination, in compliance with all health guidelines set by itself.

With the flight reopening to Cox’s Bazar as the seventh domestic route, the full internal air connectivity will be restored as the government has already reopened other six destinations — Chattogram, Sylhet, Saidpur, Jashore, Barishal and Rajshahi — in a row after the domestic flight resumption.

The national flag carrier Biman Bangladesh and two others private airlines, US-Bangla and Novoair each will operate two daily flights from Dhaka to Cox’s Bazar, the airlines said in separate press releases.

The US-Bangla Airlines flights will leave Dhaka for Cox’s Bazar at 9:30 am and 3:30 pm and will fly from Cox’s Bazar to Dhaka at 11:05 am and 5:05 pm.

Novoair will operate two daily flights from Dhaka at 9:30 am and 3:00 pm and from Cox’s Bazar at 11:05 am and 4:35 pm.
