Sixteen Indian sailors, who had been stranded in Bangladesh due to the coronavirus outbreak, left Dhaka today on a special flight of Novoair.

Carrying the Indian sailors, the chartered flight took off from Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport in Dhaka around 12:55pm (Bangladesh time) for Guwahati, India, an official of Novoair told The Daily Star.

It landed there at 1:18pm (Indian time), said the official.
