“That is why we have added two more flights. These two flights were not scheduled prior to this – but we decided to add it based on demand,” Waseem said.

He also further explained that Bangladeshi authorities have also lifted the travel ban to the Maldives – therewith both inbound and outbound travel between Bangladesh and Maldives is now possible.
