Biman Bangladesh Airlines will continue to suspend its flights to Manchester, Medina, Kathmandu, Bangkok and Kuwait amid a second wave of coronavirus infections in winter, reports bdnews24.com.

No flights to these five cities would operate until Dec 31, the state carrier said on its website.

The ban had remained in force on these routes since the beginning of the pandemic, said Biman spokesperson Tahera Khandaker.

Bangladesh stopped international flights after the Covid-19 pandemic hit the country in mid-March. Biman had resumed flights gradually since June, but not on these five routes.

Biman has been operating special flights to ferry stranded passengers to and from Bangladesh.
