Biman to resume Dhaka-Sylhet-Dhaka flights

33Biman will resume today its domestic flights from Dhaka to Sylhet and back, ending an almost three-year long suspension of the flight.
A flight schedule released by Sylhet DC Md Shadiul Islam confirmed the resumption of the flights, also informing that Civil Aviation and Tourism Minister Rashed Khan Menon will inaugurate the flights today at 1:50 pm.
Biman plans to fly this route on a daily basis. The one-way fare is Taka 3,200 and 7,900 in the economy and business classes respectively. Introductory discounts have brought the economy-class fares down to Taka 2,700, a Biman source informed.
Due to aircraft shortage, Biman had suspended the flight in September 2012. It is resuming on Monday after almost a three-year long sabbatical, said Biman Commercial In-charge Md Shahnawaz Majumder.
However, Biman caters to Sylhet via transit flights from Jeddah, London and Dubai, he informed.
According to Biman sources, four private airliners regularly fly the Dhaka-Sylhet-Dhaka route apart from the state owned airlines.
