A special flight of Biman Bangladesh Airlines today brought back 388 Bangladeshi expatriate workers from Saudi Arabia, most of whom were either in jail or in detention camps in the gulf country for various reasons including not having legal documents. 

 

“The special chartered flight of Biman landed at the Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport at 9:35pm,” Tahera Khandaker, deputy general manager (public relations) of Biman, told The Daily Star.

Md Kawsar, a doctor at the health desk at HSIA, told this correspondent that most of the returnees are migrant workers.

In recent weeks several hundred Bangladeshi workers also returned from Saudi Arabia.

Over 14,000 Bangladeshi migrant workers have so far returned home since April from 10 countries, according to data of Expatriates’ Welfare Desk at the Dhaka airport.

Following suspension of regular flights for over three months since mid-March, Bangladesh resumed regular flight operations on international routes on a limited scale from June 16.

Biman has been allowed to operate flights on Dhaka-London-Dhaka route while Qatar Airways was allowed to operate only transit flights on Dhaka-Doha-Dhaka route, according to the Civil Aviation Authority of Bangladesh.
