Biman Bangladesh Airlines will resume its flight from Dhaka to Yangon in November.

Earlier in October 2006, the national flag carrier suspended its operation on the route due to shortage of flight.

A deal was signed between Civil Aviation Authority of Bangladesh (Caab) and Myanmar Civil Aviation in this regard at the Caab office in the capital on Thursday.

Kevin J Steele, managing director of Biman Bangladesh Airlines, told this to reporters after the agreement signing ceremony.

    Congratulations to Biman, CAAB & MOCAT. Thank you Mr. Kevin Steele, thank you Air Vice Marshal Mahmud Hossain, and thank you to Lt. Col. (Rtd.) Faruk, the honourable MOCAT minister. We are also waiting to see a positive outcome of the Bangladesh-Brunei negotiation; keeping our finger crossed. Once again, good to see Biman is taking step toward a very positive direction as Myanmar is becoming a hottest spot for tourism. Our businessmen & entrepreneur should venture into this unexplored part of the world where natural resources in in plenty. We need a strong diplomatic tie for our geopolitical reasons too.
