Biman Bangladesh Airlines will continue to suspend its flights to Manchester, Medina, Kathmandu, Bangkok and Kuwait during the second wave of coronavirus infections in winter.
No flights to these five cities will be operated until 31 December, said the state carrier on its website, reports the media.
The ban has remained in force on these routes since the start of the pandemic, said Biman spokesperson Tahera Khandaker.
Bangladesh stopped international flights after the mid-March outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic hit the region. Biman has been resuming flights steadily since June, but not on these five routes.
Biman has been operating special flights to ferry stranded passengers in and out of Bangladesh.
