Chattogram’s first hajj flight of Biman Bangladesh Airlines left the port city with 398 pilgrims early Tuesday.

The flight left Shah Amanat International Airport at 3:45am, said Biman’s Chattogram Manager Shahadat Hossain.

Earlier, Chattogram City Corporation Mayor Rezaul Karim Chowdhury inaugurated the hajj flight from Chattogram to Medinah at the Shah Amanat International Airport.

He exchanged greetings with the hajj pilgrims and greeted them with flowers.

This year, Biman Bangladesh Airlines will operate 22 hajj flights from Chattogram . Of those, 20 flights will go directly to Jeddah and two flights to Madinah. These flights will carry 8,000 pilgrims.

This time all the hajj pilgrims from Chattogram will be transported by Biman. If any hajj pilgrim wants to use other airlines, he will have to go to Jeddah or Madinah via Dhaka, Shahadat Hossain added.
