The government has arranged another special flight from London to bring back Bangladeshi citizens stranded in the UK due to suspension of regular passenger flights for the Covid-19 pandemic.

On June 13, a chartered flight of national flag carrier Biman Bangladesh Airlines will depart from London Heathrow at around 10:00am (London local time) carrying the Bangladeshi citizens, according to a press release of Bangladesh High Commission in the UK.

Seat arrangements in the flight will be made maintaining social distancing while ticket prices have been set at 600 pounds for economy class and 1435 pounds for business class, added the release.

The high commission has urged all passengers to register through the Bangladesh High Commission London link – https://forms.gle/qFXRvriFCLUUVV857 – to secure their seats in the flight.

Earlier on May 11, the government brought back 114 stranded Bangladeshi nationals to the country from the UK by a special flight of Biman.

Apart from UK, Bangladesh so far brought back stranded Bangladeshis from India, US, Canada, Australia, Thailand, Malaysia, Maldives and Singapore. 

Bangladesh suspended regular passenger flight operations on all international routes except for China since March 16 to contain the spread of Covid-19.

The government, however, resumed flights on three domestic routes from June 1.
