Biman to resume flights to Saudi Arabia on Wednesday

Biman Bangladesh Airlines has announced that it will resume all its flights to the Kingdom on Wednesday 06 January 2021 after Saudi Arabia lifted a temporary ban on international commercial flights related to a new strain of coronavirus.

A press release, signed by Tahera Khandaker, deputy general manager (public relations) of Biman, was issued in this regard on Sunday.

“The passengers of the suspended flights are requested to visit their nearest Biman Sales Office as per the schedule given on Biman’s website,” said the press release. “They will be allotted seats on a priority basis, subject to vacancy,” it added.

On December 20, Saudi Arabia had halted international flights and suspended entry through its land and seaports after a new, fast-spreading Covid-19 variant appeared in the UK.
