Staff Reporter :: Private airline Regent Airways has announced the closure of flights for the next six months.
Regent Airways CEO Imran Asif confirmed the information on Sunday afternoon.
He said that in the present context, the entire aviation industry is going through a crisis. It is not known how long this situation will last. Our revenue has come down to zero percent. We have considered this as a guideline for three months. If all is well then I can manage the flight even before.
Imran Asif said, “The international destinations where we operate flights had to shut down all of them because of coronavirus.” It is also uncertain when the sanctions imposed by different countries will be lifted. Once the sanctions are lifted, it may take time for the passengers to regain their confidence in travel. This decision has been taken after considering everything.
Regent was operating flights to Qatar, Malaysia, Oman, Singapore and India on international routes. Due to the restrictions imposed by different countries, these routes are closed. Last Friday, the Dhaka-Singapore flight closed.
Regent Airways currently operates flights to Chittagong and Cox's Bazar within the country and to Kolkata, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Muscat and Doha outside the country.
