Hazrat Shahjalal of Dhaka. The two countries have decided to start flights between the international airport and Narita International Airport in the capital of Japan this year.
This matter is among the eight agreements and memorandum of understanding signed in the presence of the prime ministers of Bangladesh and Japan last Wednesday.
On this day, eight agreements and memorandums of understanding were signed in the office of Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, including electricity and energy, agriculture, trade and defense cooperation. Later, the two prime ministers held a joint press conference.
Regarding the launch of flights, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said that Dhaka-Narita direct flight is going to start this year. We are happy to announce Dhaka-Narita direct flights within this year.
It takes about eight and a half hours to go to Narita by direct air from Dhaka. When this flight starts, it will take six hours to go from Dhaka to Japan’s Narita Airport. It is believed that the communication between the two countries will be easier.
Biman had been trying for years to launch flights to Narita, Japan. The state-owned airline also received the approval of the Japanese government to start flights. The launch of this flight was also delayed due to the delay of the Prime Minister’s visit to Japan.
Sheikh Hasina is visiting Japan after three years since her last visit in 2019 before the Corona pandemic.
The Prime Minister left Dhaka on Tuesday (April 25) morning on a 15-day official visit to Japan, the United States and the United Kingdom. On the same day, he landed at Tokyo’s Haneda International Airport at 4:45 pm local time.
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina was welcomed with a red carpet reception and guard of honor at Japan Airport. The Prime Minister is having a busy time since the morning of Wednesday (April 26), the second day of the visit.
