The flights on domestic routes have resumed under a limited scale on Wednesday morning after 16 days of suspension following countrywide restriction to check the spread of COVID-19 from April 5. 

According to Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport sources, two domestic flights of US-Bangla Airlines have left for Jashore and Chattogram this morning. In addition, other airlines will operate throughout the day. 

Earlier on Tuesday, the Civil Aviation Authority of Bangladesh (CAAB) announced that it decided to resume flights on domestic routes under a limited scale from Wednesday. 

"Limited numbers of scheduled passenger domestic flight will be resumed from tomorrow," a CAAB circular said on last night.

The resumption has been taken place after 16 days of suspension as CAAB imposed ban on passenger flight operations on all domestic routes following countrywide restriction to check spread of COVID-19 from April 5.
