CAAB agrees to air bubble arrangement with India
Dhaka, September 3: The Civil Aviation Authority of Bangladesh (CAAB) has lifted the ban on Bangladesh-India flights under the Air Bubble Agreement. CAAB has agreed to the August 28 proposal of the Civil Aviation Authority of India and has allowed flights to operate from September 4. Flights will continue under the Air Bubble Agreement until regular scheduled flights are introduced. The CAAB sent a letter of consent to India's civil aviation on Thursday (September 2nd).
However, despite the flight, the health regulations have been reckless. Passengers travelling from India to Bangladesh will have to stay in home quarantine for 14 days. The passenger must have a coronavirus negative certificate obtained through RT-PCR test, within 72 hours of coming to Bangladesh. Airlines will have to carry 90 percent of the aircraft's passenger capacity.
CAAB has sent a letter to the neighbouring country's civil aviation agreeing to India's proposals. At the same time, it has proposed to increase the flight frequency from seven to 10. The apex body has also proposed to provide business visa facility for simulator training to the airline employees.
In this regard, an official of CAAB said that the Civil Aviation Authority of India had sent a letter to them on August 28 informing them of their condition. Now agreeing to the proposal, it has lifted the ban on flights under the Air Bubble Agreement from September 4. Now with the consent of India, the airlines will be able to operate the flights.
