Dhaka: The Civil Aviation Authority of Bangladesh has approved the Malaysian carrier Malindo Air to resume flights to and from Dhaka on a limited scale.

Malindo Air has received permission to operate two flights a week initially, CAAB said.

Sohel Kamruzzaman, Spokesperson of CAAB, said that Malindo Air will be able to carry only transit passengers and those who have Malaysian residence permits from Dhaka.

Bangladeshi expatriate workers stranded in the country will not be getting the opportunity to go to Malaysia or return home right now through Malindo Air.

CAAB has so far given approvals for flight resumption on a limited scale to Qatar Airways, Emirates, Turkish Airlines and Air Arabia.

After a three month long suspension of regular flight operations following the coronavirus pandemic, CAAB gradually started permitting airlines to resume flights on international routes from June 16 on a limited scale.
