After a suspension of over seven years, Biman Bangladesh Airlines is all set to resume its Dhaka-New York flight in June this year, according to officials.

The national flag carrier decided to recommence a number of new destinations this summer including the Dhaka-New York route, Biman Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Kevin John Steele told reporters during a monthly press briefing at his office in the capital today.

The airline abandoned the route in 2006 to trim losses.

The flights will operate two times in a week and have a stopover in Birmingham, Steele said.

Tickets for this flight will be available from the first of February, he added.
