The Australian High Commission in Bangladesh has arranged a non-scheduled commercial flight to take back the Australians currently in Bangladesh.
A message from Australian High Commissioner Jeremy Bruer, posted on the official Facebook page of the high commission in Dhaka on Tuesday, says this.
"The Australian High Commission in Dhaka is pleased to announce that, through Sri Lankan Airlines, a non-scheduled commercial flight has been arranged to bring Australians home from Bangladesh," the message reads.
The post also contains instructions regarding the registration process, encouraging all Australians in Bangladesh to make use of this opportunity to depart, as "we may not be in a position to organise a further non-scheduled flight," the post reads.
"While we will endeavour to provide enough seats for everyone who wishes to return home, those who have registered already will be prioritized," the post adds.
An Australian high commission official today told The Daily Star that it is in the process of finalising things in this regard.
