About 11 years ago, British Airways stopped flights on the Dhaka-London route due to losses. The airline wants to operate flights on this known route again.
The airline has appealed to the Civil Aviation Authority of Bangladesh (CAAB).
The application is currently with the Ministry of Civil Aviation and Tourism.
Senior Secretary of the Ministry of Civil Aviation and Tourism on Sunday. Mahibul Haque informed the media about the matter.
Md. Mahibul Haque told the media that British Airways had applied to operate the Dhaka-London-Dhaka route.
A decision in this regard will be taken at the meeting on November 29.
After operating regular flights for 34 years, British Airways stopped operating flights on the Dhaka-London-Dhaka route on March 29, 2009 due to losses.
After the closure of British Airways in 2009, Emirates, Qatar Airways and Turkish Airlines expanded their business in Bangladesh.
They take Bangladeshi passengers to various destinations in Europe and the United States via Dubai, Doha and Istanbul.
Bangladeshi passengers will benefit from the resumption of British Airways flights.
At present Biman Bangladesh Airlines is the only direct passenger on the Dhaka-London route.
