India sends air travel bubble proposal to Bangladesh

India's Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) has proposed the operation of five airlines on 16 routes a week under the air travel bubble agreement between Bangladesh and India, primarily for emergency services during the global coronavirus pandemic.

These Indian airlines will be able to carry 17,120 passengers a week from Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport in Dhaka and Shah Amanat International Airport in Chittagong to New Delhi, Kolkata, Mumbai and Chennai, depending on passenger demand, according to the proposal.

Ticket prices, ground handling charges and other airport charges will not be included in the air travel bubble agreement.

The Civil Aviation Authority of Bangladesh (CAAB) said the flights would launch soon after the Indian proposal is verified.

The proposal said Air India will be able to carry 346 passengers per week on the Delhi-Dhaka-Delhi route and 346 passengers per week on the Kolkata-Dhaka-Kolkata route.

Go Air will be able to carry 1,302 passengers per week on the Delhi-Dhaka-Delhi route, as well as 1,302 passengers on the Kolkata-Dhaka-Kolkata route.
