Bangladesh is set to resume international flights starting next week, officials said Thursday, after a nearly three-month hiatus due to an outbreak of the Coronavirus.

A spokesman for the Ministry of Civil Aviation, Moheb Al-Haqi, said that Bangladesh Airlines will start operating a weekly flight between Dhaka and London starting next Tuesday.
He added that the number of flights will be increased according to the number of passengers.

He explained that Qatar Airways can operate a flight three times a week between Dhaka and Doha after June 15th.

Mufid al-Rahman, head of the Civil Aviation Authority, said that passengers and airlines must abide by the health rules laid down by the International Civil Aviation Organization.

He added that any passengers who do not have a document proving that he was not infected with the Corona virus upon arrival will be placed in quarantine for 14 days.

Bangladesh had resumed domestic flights on a limited scale on June 1, after the government eased some of the measures it had taken nine weeks ago to counter the Corona virus, which has so far infected 78,052 people.
