Sylhet airport starts flight operations after 6-day

Sylhet Osmani International Airport has resumed flight operations after being closed for six days due to floods. Flights have resumed since Thursday morning.

Md Hafizur Rahman, the airport director, said, "The flight operations resumed as the flood water started receding. The airport activities also became normal."

Two flights started moving on Sylhet-London route. Besides, a flight left the airport for Manchester at 12:35pm, he said.

Though the floodwater receded from the runway on Sunday, flights operation could not be resumed as lighting of approach area still remained under water.

The airport authorities suspended the flight operations from June 17 as flood water inundated the runway.
