US-Bangla Airlines today announced an additional weekly flight on the Dhaka-Doha route from September 9 due to an increase in passenger flow to the popular Middle Eastern destination.
Earlier on August 31, the leading private airlines of the country resumed flight operations on this route, with two weekly flights on Mondays and Fridays.
"From September 9, we will operate three weekly flights on the Dhaka-Doha route as the number of passengers on the route has increased in recent days," Kamrul Islam, general manager (public relations) of US-Bangla Airlines, told The Daily Star.
The additional flight will leave Dhaka airport at 7:30pm on Wednesday every week.
US-Bangla is using the 164 seated Boeing 737-800 aircraft to carry passengers on Dhaka-Doha route.
US-Bangla Airlines also said they are operating the flights following all types of health and travel guidelines of the governments of Bangladesh and Qatar.
With a total of 13 aircraft -- including six brand new ATR 72-600, three Dash 8-Q400 and four Boeing 737-800 -- US-Bangla Airlines is now also operating one weekly flight on the Dhaka-Guangzhou route and 40 daily flights on all seven domestic routes.
