Flights from Sylhet
There are thousands of passengers travelling from Sylhet to the Middle East and London. Many a time they do not get tickets at the time they want to fly. Moreover, the present fares of Biman and other airlines are too high. Recently, the Civil Aviation Department accorded permission to a foreign airline to operate cheap flights from Chittagong to the Middle East which has proved to be highly successful. There is no reason why the same type of flights should not be operated from Sylhet to the Middle East. Apart from being convenient to passengers, this will boost manpower export.
I would request the Ministry of Civil Aviation to take immediate steps to start such flights from Sylhet to the Middle East and the UK in national interest.
