Private carrier US-Bangla Airlines plans to resume its flights to Bangkok from February after a break of four months.
The airline will operate four flights on every Sundays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays and five flights a week from March on the route, said Kamrul Islam, general manager of US-Bangla Airlines.
The airline had to suspend its flights to the capital of Thailand because of shortage of aircraft on September 30 this year.
“We have purchased two Boeing 737-800 aircraft and one of them will reach Bangladesh this month,” said Islam, who is also the spokesperson of the company.
The flights on Dhaka-Bangkok-Dhaka route will be operated with the newly procured 164-seater Boeing 737-800 aircraft that includes eight business class seats and 156 economy class seats, he added.
Currently, US-Bangla operates international flights to Muscat, Doha, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Guangzhou and Kolkata along with domestic flights to all operational airports of Bangladesh.
