Dhaka: Biman Bangladesh

Airlines on Tuesday resumed Dhaka-DelhiDhaka direct flights after nearly five years with three flights a week initially as India’s private Jet airways halted its flight operations between the two capitals recently.
 The resumption flight landed at Indira Gandhi International Airport this afternoon while Bangladesh High Commissioner to India Syed Muazzem Ali received the arriving passengers through flowers at terminal-3 of the airport at 1720 hrs (local time).
 A spectacular gate was decorated by using water cannon to welcome the 150 arriving and receiving the 87 departing passengers. A cake was cut on the gate premises to mark the occasion. The passengers including some in wheel chairs expressed their satisfaction after travelling by Biman’s Dhaka-Delhi direct flight saying that it would immensely reduce their sufferings which they had to face while travelling via Kolkata. Earlier in Dhaka, State Minister for Civil Aviation and Tourism M Mahbub Ali inaugurated the flight before it took off from Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport at 1500 hrs.
 Ali hoped that Biman would be able to make profit form Dhaka-Delhi direct flight as the national flag carrier is now the lone airline on this route. He said the government is committed to turn the national flag carrier into a profitable venture through providing standard on time service to the passengers.
 Civil Aviation and Tourism Secretary M Mohibul Haque, Biman’s board of directors chairman Air Marshal (retd) Muhammad Enamul Bari and acting managing director and CEO Captain Farhat Hasan Jamil also spoke while Indian deputy high commissioner to Dhaka, Bishwajit De were present on the occasion.
