British Airways to suspend flights from Dhaka early next year
British Airways will suspend its Dhaka-London passenger flights from March because of non-profitability of the route, media reported said Saturday, according to dpa.
"The decision to suspend flights between Dhaka and London has been a difficult one to make. However, the route is not making a profitable contribution to our business and we are unable to sustain it," Amanda Amos, the airline's Area Commercial Manager for South Asia, said in a statement.
The airline, however, will continue cargo operations using connecting flights via the Middle East, said the release issued on Friday.
It added the customers who had booked British Airways flights after March 28, 2009 from Dhaka will be contacted by the airline about making alternative arrangements.
British Airways has been operating flights to and from Bangladesh since the mid-1970s, at present operating three flights a week between Dhaka and London.
