Dhaka/UNI: The flight operation between Bangladesh and India under air bubble arrangement will resume on Sunday after four months of suspension due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The flight operation between Bangladesh and India under air bubble agreement will resume from September 5,” a notice issued by Bangladesh Civil Aviation Authority of Bangladesh (CAAB) said here Saturday.

The air bubble agreement will be in effect until the resumption of scheduled international passenger flights between the two countries, it added.

National flag carrier Biman Bangladesh Airlines and private airline US-Bangla have already announced their flight schedules to India from tomorrow.

Biman will operate two flights per week on Dhaka-Kolkata-Dhaka route and two weekly flights on Dhaka-New Delhi-Dhaka destination while US-Bangla airlines will operate three weekly flights on Dhaka-Chennai-Dhaka route.

Three Indian carriers – Air India, Spice Jet and Indigo will also operate flights between Dhaka and New Delhi, Kolkata and Chennai.

Except individuals with tourist visa, all can travel to India from Bangladesh.

The travelers from Bangladesh must test negative for COVID-19 in a PCR test done on earlier than 72 hours of the flight and they have to go through molecular tests at their won expenses after arriving at Indian airports.
