After months of lockdown and suspension of flights, the air bubble between India and Bangladesh was inaugurated by High Commissioner of India to Bangladesh Vikram Doraiswami and Bangladesh’s Civil Aviation Authority Chairman Air Vice Marshal Mafidur Rahman on Wednesday at the Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport in Dhaka.
