"The decision will go into effect tomorrow. For now, they will remain suspended until March 31," Tahera Khandaker, deputy general manager (public relations) of the carrier, told The Daily Star today.
With this, Biman suspends flights to 12 out of its 18 international destinations.
The Malaysian government has imposed an air travel ban with different countries including Bangladesh to stop the spread of Covid-19.
Yesterday it imposed the bar on air travel, starting from March 18 until 31, in a bid to stem the rising number of coronavirus cases.
