Civil Aviation Authority of Bangladesh (CAAB) has said that all local and international flights will be suspended if a nationwide lockdown is declared from April 14.

CAAB Chairman Air Vice Marshal M Mafidur Rahman, however, said the final decision will depend on the government's directives on lockdown.

Mafidur said during the strict nationwide lockdown, air passengers will find it very hard to reach the Dhaka airport as transport services will remain suspended.

"Therefore, it would not be possible for the air passengers to reach the airport to catch their respective flights," he said.

Earlier, CAAB suspended passenger flight operations on all domestic routes following the week-long countrywide restrictions from April 5.
