Biman Bangladesh Airlines will be operating sixteen special flights in addition to their regular flights in the current month to bring stranded migrant workers back from Malaysia.
The national flag carrier took the decision as per directives of Civil Aviation and Tourism Ministry in order to help those trapped who received general amnesty under the “Back for Good” programme of Malaysian government, said a Biman press release that added the flights will be operated by its Boeing 737 and 787-8 Dreamliner.
State Minster for Civil Aviation and Tourism M Mahbub Ali, in this regard, said “as the national flag carrier, Bangladesh Biman has liability to the countrymen. Civil Aviation Ministry and Biman would operate the flights on this ground.”
Although Malaysian government declared general amnesty for illegal Bangladeshi workers under Back for Good programme, the workers have been stranded due to ticket crisis.
