Biman direct cargo flight to UK begins tomorrow


PV Desk : The direct air cargo flight of Biman Bangladesh Airlines on Dhaka-London route begins from Wednesday (March 14) after receiving the long-awaited ‘Air Cargo Security-3’ (ACC-3) certificate.
Shakil Meraj, Biman’s General Manager (GM) for public relations, said, “The direct cargo flight from Dhaka to the United Kingdom will begin at 10:45 am on Wednesday (March 14) with the flight BG-001.”
Earlier on February 19, European Union (EU) and Department for Transportation lifted the ban on cargo flights of UK.
Biman was unable to ship cargo by air to the UK since the ACC3 certificate was not renewed.
However, it received certificate from UK’s Department of Transportation on Monday night (March 12).
