Sixty-one Bangladeshis and foreign nationals, including Thais, reached Dhaka from Thailand by a special flight of Biman Bangladesh Airlines.
Since the Covid-19 outbreak last year, the Embassy of Bangladesh in Bangkok has so far facilitated 14 special flights to Dhaka in coordination with the authorities concerned in Bangladesh and Thailand.
Officers of the Embassy saw the passengers off at Suvarnabhumi International Airport and extended necessary assistance over their departure formalities.
The Biman Bangladesh flight reached Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport yesterday, said a media release today.
The latest flight was arranged on self-payment basis in line with the Bangladesh Government's commitment to extend all possible assistance and support for repatriation of stranded Bangladeshis abroad.
Ambassador of Bangladesh to Thailand Mohammed Abdul Hye thanked the Thai Government for extending their cooperation in repatriation of the stranded Bangladeshi nationals.
