All domestic flights from Shah Amanat International Airport in Chattogram to Shahjalal International Airport in Dhaka have been suspended due to dense fog.
The Chattogram Shah Amanat International Airport Authority said in a statement on Friday morning.
This situation has been created due to the inability of the flight to land at Dhaka’s Shahjalal International Airport mainly due to dense fog. On the same day, a US Bangla Airlines flight (Boeing 707) with 150 passengers from Malaysia failed to land in Dhaka and landed at Chattogram Airport at 8 am.
The matter has been confirmed by Farhad Hossain Khan, Wing Commander, Shah Amanat International Airport.
According to the concerned sources, more than five hundred passengers are scheduled to travel on three flights of the Dhaka- Chattogram route this morning.
