A VVIP flight of Biman Bangladesh Airlines carrying the premier and members of her entourage will take off from Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport for London this morning.
The flight is scheduled to reach Heathrow International Airport at 3:55pm local time.
“During the visit, the prime minister will attend a Conference of Bangladesh Envoys (in Europe) in the British capital on July 20,” PM’s Press Secretary Ihsanul Karim told the news agency yesterday.
At the advice of Bangladeshi doctors, Sheikh Hasina will also receive eye treatment in London, he said.
