Biman Bangladesh Airlines has decided to launch direct flights on the Chattogram-Sylhet-Chattogram route for the first time in the country’s aviation history. 

To mark the birth centenary of the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the national flag carrier took the initiative to operate flights two days a week on March 17 from the port city Chattogram to Sylhet, a press release said.

Biman’s route will create a bridge between the country’s northeastern part Sylhet and South coastal city Chattogram for the rapid expansion of tourism and commercial development, said the release.

Earlier, Biman initiated direct flights on Sylhet-Cox’s Bazar-Sylhet route to give a boost to the country’s tourism sector.
